Activity 1


LI To be able to write a sentence. Talk about what you want to be when you grow up. Write a sentence about it.

This week we are continuing to focus on the book above.  This activity focuses on pages 8 and 9 and the conversation between the mole and the boy.


"I am so small" said the mole.

"Yes" said the boy. "But you make a huge difference".


What do you think the boy means by this?


"What do you want to be when you grow up?"

"Kind* said the boy.


Why do you think the boy answered in that why? 

What qualities would you like to have when you are an adult?

What would you like to do as a job?


Can you write a sentence to tell us about what you would like to be like when you are an adult?  Think about the job you might have and why?  Think about the qualities you would have?


Remember to include a capital letter, full stop, finger spaces and using those phonemes to spell the words you want to write.  As an extra challenge you could use the conjunction because to tell us why you would like to be this.  You can use paper or Purple Mash to write your sentence.
