What a fantastic first week of home learning. We've so loved seeing all the work you've been getting up to. Take a look at Marta's poem and rainbow for the window and well done Temidere and Temidayo for your creative pirate ships.
- Where did Grace find the skeleton? P.35 In a clearing stretched out beneath a fig tree.
- Find and copy the phrase that tells you Grace is scared. P.36 ‘With a shudder’
- ‘Pointing to the grassy bank opposite.’ In this context, what does ‘bank’ mean? P.36 A mass or mound of earth (or a small hill)
- Why could Grace open the chest easily? P.37 Because the metal clasp had rusted away
- What was inside the chest? P.37 Rubies, pearls and gold coins
- Find and copy the phrase that tells you Grace was excited. P.37 Her heart beat faster
- Write your own sentence to describe the contents of the treasure chest – you could use a simile, 2A sentence or personification.
- ‘She put both arms up to her elbows into the treasure’. What does this show the reader about the treasure? P.38 There’s lots of treasure - the box is very deep and full because the treasure reaches Grace’s elbows.
- What two adjectives describe the coins? P.38 cold and hard
- ‘Was this what awaited her?’ How do you think Grace feels at this point in the story? P.39 Your opinion – could be that she is feeling quite disheartened, worried and scared.
