Reading

Maia is not having a very nice time so far with the Carters. However, at the end of Chapter 3, Minty (Miss Minton) comes up with a plan to help improve things for Maia. Do you think it will work?

After reading Chapter 3, think about:

How did you feel when Maia was not allowed to go outside and explore or go for a walk?

How did you feel when Maia had to sit through boring lessons of easy work and was never allowed to answer questions or share her work like the twins?

How do you think Maia feels about living with the Carters?

How did you feel when you read about Miss Minton's plan?

How do you feel about Miss Minton now? Do you like her?

 

Today, you are going to pretend that you are Maia writing a diary entry the evening after Minty tells her the plan.

 

Remember, diary entries include:

  • What happened (the main events in order)
  • The person's thoughts
  • The person's feelings
  • The person's opinion

Here is an example of a diary entry written by Little Red Riding Hood

 

 

 

Task: Write a diary entry for Maia describing the recent events and how she feels.

 What I'm looking for:

  • What happened (the main events in order)
  • Maia's thoughts
  • Maia's feelings
  • Maia's opinion

  

Questions to help you:

How did Maia feel when she was not allowed to go outside and explore or go for a walk?

How did Maia feel when she had to sit through boring lessons of easy work and was never allowed to answer questions or share her work like the twins?

How does Maia feel about living with the Carters?

How did Maia feel when she heard about Miss Minton's plan?

How does Maia feel about Miss Minton now?  

 

Here is the second part of Chapter 3 to help refresh your memory.

Independent Activity - Learn how to Wash Windows

 

 It is important to wash your windows every now and then so you can see outside properly.

Watch the video below of a young girl teaching you how to clean your windows very well!

 

Task: Wash some of the windows in your home.

It might be difficult to get it right if this is your first time but, don't worry, each time you practise you will get better and quicker at doing it yourself.

If you like, you can send me a video or photo of you washing windows at hhobbs@sfdprimary.co.uk  I will post the photos in the Independent Champions section of our Year 4 weekly page.
