Message from Mrs Mammatt 6th July
- 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:
A comparative adjective is used to compare one person, action, thing or state to another.
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.
Below is a link to a Powerpoint and some practise sheets.
We are now on week 5 of our science work in class. If you haven't yet had a go at these resources take a look this week.
I have included a video above entitled 'The Water'.
This links to our 'Caring for animals and their environment' for week 5.
The children have been designing and making some amazing posters in Class One to make people think about how we should look after our oceans.
