Sir Francis Drake


Eiger - Friday


Today we are going to be asking and answering some questions about The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. We call this exercise comprehension.
To comprehend means to show you understand something. When we answer questions it shows we understand the story.

Watch the story again here on YouTube and answer these questions in full sentences. That's when we use part of the question in our answer.

Here's one I did:
1. What does Mrs. Grinling send to Mr. Grinling everday?
Mrs. Grinling sends Mr. Grinling lunch everyday.

Can you think of three questions to ask Mr. Grinling? Write them down and remember to put question marks at the end of sentences that are questions.


We are learning fractions! Fractions are parts of a whole. We can use numbers to show how many parts of a whole we have.

Special Task

Finger Paint Animals

Why not try to create a full zoo of hand-print and finger painted animals - use different body parts to create different animals! ...remember when we used our feet to paint? Maybe your elbow could come in handy.
