On Monday, we shared the beginning of the story 'Lost and Found' and together we wrote a short diary entry as if we were the boy finding the penguin at our doorstep.
Today, I would like you to listen to the next part of the story and answer the questions below. This task is focussing on your understanding of the vocabulary.
You can either write short sentences, or tell your grown up your ideas.
12th January 2020
Think back to the our story, I want you to write 5 sentences (more if you can) about how the penguin got to the boy's front door. Brainstorm some ideas before writing them up in neat. Focus on your handwriting.
When the penguin arrives at the boy's house, he looks sad.
Your task today is to find synonyms that mean the same as the word 'sad'. I would like to you find as many as you can and then write me 2 sentences that include as many as the words as you can. I have attached a document where you can write your words/sentences and also a link to a thesaurus.
Make a list of things that the boy and penguin might pack in their suitcase.
15th January - Changing the story
I would like you to think about how the Lost and Found Story would change if the animal turning up at the boy's door was different. e.g. if a lion turned up at the door, would to boy take it to the South Pole? Can you write 5 sentences (focussing on your handwriting) about a different animal turning up and where would the boy take it to? Use adventurous word choices, and be imaginative!
