Literacy:  The Green Ship – Prediction

 The new book that we will be focusing on is ‘The Green Ship‘ By author and illustrator Quentin Blake.

The blurb says: 

“Two children find the Green Ship when they climb over the wall into what is more like a forest than a garden. The ship has bushes for bows and stern and its funnels are trees; a small garden shed on an ancient stump is the wheel house and in command of the ship is the owner of the garden, old Mrs Tredegar. Throughout the summer she and the Bosun and the two children sail the Seven Seas visiting exotic faraway places and having wonderful adventures.”

Can you make a prediction of what might happen?

Now, watch the video of the story being read. 

Think about:

  • Why do you think our literacy focus will be on this particular book?
  • What types of texts could this story and illustrations inspire us to write?

 

Geography: Spain

This half term, we will be focusing on the country of Spain.

Can you find out:

  •  Where is Spain?
  • Can you locate Spain on the World and European Maps?
  • What continent is it in?
  • What countries boarder Spain?

The kiddle.co website might be useful.

Challenge: Can you plot a route from where you live to the capital of Spain.

Consider:

  • What forms of transport you would use to travel?
  • How long it would take to get there?

Use Google Maps and Google Earth to help you.

A bit of fun for when you have finished the geography work, have a go at this Map of Europe Puzzle.
