One Plastic Bag


We are looking at a new book for the next three weeks in English - Writing, called One Plastic Bag.

Lesson 1 - Predict

Look at the front cover and the blurb of this book.

What do you predict the book is about? Why?

Write your prediction using the following sentence starters:


I predict that...     because the front cover shows...

Lesson 2 - Ask questions

Look at the front cover and blurb again. What questions do you have about this book?

Eg Who is the lady? Why is she holding a plastic bag? What are the goats doing?  

Use the question hand to start your questions.

Lesson 3 - Year 4 spellings practise

Choose a game from the spelling menu to practise this week's spellings.

Lesson 4 - Read the book and find the meaning of unfamiliar words
