Message from Mrs Mammatt 6th July

Every day, Mr Grinling the lighthouse keeper cleans and polishes his light to make sure it shines brightly at night. At lunchtime he tucks into a delicious and well-deserved lunch, prepared by his wife. But Mr Grinling isn't the only one who enjoys the tasty food. Will Mrs Grinling think of a way to stop the greedy seagulls from stealing the lighthouse keeper's lunch?

  • There are lots of interesting words in the story (e.g. brazen, ingenious, consolingly). Can you find any words that you don't know and write a definition of them?
  • Mr Grinling is an 'industrious' lighthouse keeper. What does this mean? Can you think of any words that mean the same thing?
  • Write a recipe for something that might go into Mr Grinling's lunch.
  • Write a set of instructions that teach someone how to make a delicious sandwich for Mr Grinling's lunch.
  • The lighthouse keeper's lunch is 'delicious'. Can you think of any synonyms? Can you think of any antonyms?
  • Retell the story from the point of view of one of the seagulls.
  • The seagulls are 'scavenging'. What does this mean?
  • The lunch was 'devoured' by by the seagulls. Can you make a list of words which show different ways that people can eat their food?
  • Write a new story about Fred, Tom and Bert (the seagulls) and an adventure that they might have.
  • Write a diary from the point of view of Mr Grinling. Use this video to get some ideas for your work:

This week we're learning how to add the suffixes
 
-er   and   -est 
 
to adjectives.
 
The suffix -er turns an adjective into a comparative adjective.

A comparative adjective is used to compare one person, action, thing or state to another.

The suffix -est turns it into a superlative adjective.
 

The suffix -est is added to the end of the original adjective to show that it is being compared to two or more people, actions, things or states e.g. Sarah was biggest child in the room.
