Wednesday 8th July

Good morning.  Have a wishful Wednesday.  Don't forget to email your work to year4@holycrossprimary.thurrock.sch.uk  

 

Today we would like you to read Chapter 3 Ship's Log AND Chapter 4 Gibbons and Ghosts. Take your time and read it carefully.  (the book as a pdf document is attached above).

 

Reading helps us to learn new vocabulary.  In chapters 3 and 4 you would have come across the following vocabulary: gale    bow   gannet    winch    pitch    veer    guardrail    prance    steep    elated    raucous    canopy    companionship    surreptitious    rustling    brackish    mellifluous   translucent   cacophony

 

Use a dictionary (or google) to write down the meaning of each of these words or phrases and any other new words you have come across.

 

From Chapter 3: Write down the date and names of places the family sailed to.

 

From Chapter 4: 

  1. How does Michael Morpurgo use language to show Michael’s terror in the sea?
  2. Michael describes climbing ‘laboriously’. What does he mean?
  3. What makes Michael think he is being followed?
  4. Do you think Stella is an important character? Why?
  5. Would you be fearful or overjoyed by finding the food and water? Why?
