Watch and enjoy The Highway Rat being read aloud:
Re-watch the first page being read out loud.
Talk about what the Highway Rat looks like and how he behaves towards others.
Draw a picture of him and write a short character profile, e.g:
He is a baddie and a beast.
He wears a cape.
He has a black hat and he carries a sharp silver sword.
His manners are rough and rude.
His teeth are sharp and yellow. etc.
Make sure that you start each sentence with a capital letter and it ends with a full stop.
Re-read and check the character profile together. Does it make sense?
Understanding the World-Winter: Hot/Cold
Here is the third lesson based on the theme of Winter. In this lesson, you will be identifying things that we can see outside in winter, thinking about the colours of the season and creating a drawing of things that we can see on a winter walk.
You could extend this lesson by comparing seasons, the things you might see outside and the colours you might use to represent each season.
