TUESDAY

 

Today, we're going to read chapter 2 and have a got at a vocab activity. Read the pages below and then you need to fill in the gaps with an appropriate word from the word bank. Check the sentence makes sense!

WEDNESDAY

NO LIVE LESSON TODAY ON TEAMS - PLEASE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS AND ACTIVITIES BELOW

 

Now you thought about what you would put into your medicine for somebody you didn't like, I'd now like you to begin by expanding on that a little bit more. I'd like you to write a list of the ingredients you would need and write me a sentence to describe that in the medicine, what would it taste like, what would it do to the colour or the texture of the medicine?

 

For example:

- I would add wasps to my medicine because the sting from a wasp would kick in after the person has taken the medicine and it would really tingle the tongue.

 

Once you've finished that, follow this link to read Chapter 3, then answer the questions which follow.
