Week 2, Term 2
You find this little guy one day walking home from school. Your write a letter to your mum or dad convincing them to let you keep him.
Miss Chalmers' example letter:
Dear Mum and Dad,
Look who I found when walking home from school today. Isn't he the cutest? I've already named him Stevie. Now I know we already have a dog, and a rabbit too, but let me give you a few reason explaining why I should be allowed to keep this little guy.
First of all, I promise to look after him all by myself. I'll even pay for his food with my own pocket money! I know I said I would do the same thing with the rabbit, but this time I swear I'll keep my promise!
Secondly, I think Stevie has lost his family. He's all alone in the world. How could I just put him back where I found him, not ever knowing if he would survive? I simply MUST keep him!
My last reason why I think I should be allowed to keep this little turtle, is because at the age I am now I should be learning how to be more responsible. Having a pet all of my own will help me to learn new skills, like looking after someone else. Don't you agree?
From your loving daughter,
P.S - I promise to do the dished for a whole week!
Week 6, Term 1
This week your task is to design your very own monster! You can use the page below to help you design your monster. There is also an online dice, if you don't have an actual dice at home (These are both on the home fun page too).
After you have designed your monster, you will need to describe it. Let's not be boring - get some good adjectives in there!
Week 5, Term 1
This week we are starting a writing unit about how to write narratives. A narrative is a fictional or made-up story. Use the picture of the stairs to write your own narrative. Use the 5Ws to help you include enough detail in your story. Such as:
Who are the characters in your story?
Where are the characters going?
What is at the end of the stairs?
Why are the characters doing what they're doing?
When in your story taking place?
