This is Jory John and Pete Oswald's typically on-point story about getting the right balance between fun gadgets and fun outdoors with friends!
Don't be a coach potato this week at home year 6!
Keep a diary of the different things you do around the home this week to keep active and not a coach potato.
"On Monday I did this....on Tuesday I did this......on Wednesday I did this...."
After listening to the story about Jim and his grump day, think about this task below:
Write about what makes you grumpy: Discuss things that may make you grumpy with an adult and remember that everybody is different. We may have different feelings about the same situations- what will you write about?
After watching the story, choose one of these tasks to do:
Write a new letter from one of the crayons to Duncan.
Write a new story about everyday objects that decide to quit.
Find synonyms for different colours (e.g. Red = Crimson, maroon, rose, cherry).
Write a conversation between two (or more) of the crayons.
Write Duncan's replies to the crayons' letters.
Watch this video to help you with the rules for tious and cious endings.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
