Summer 2 - Week 5 - 29th June
This week, in class, we have read a new book: Flotsam. We have really enjoyed exploring the story.
Here are some questions before your read:
Do you know what Flotsam is?
Are there any clues what the story is about from the title page?
Do you know what binoculars are?
Have you ever used a microscope before?
Before digital cameras and phones, how did people take pictures?
Look at the first few pages of the book – up to where the boy finds the camera.
What can we learn about the boy?
What kind of character is he?
Look for clues about what is in his bucket?
What has he brought to the beach? What does this tell us about him and what he likes to do?
