For today’s lesson, please use the following picture and story starter for your tasks today.
For the last few days, they had been falling from the sky. Nobody knew where they had come from; nobody knew why they were there. The mysterious objects, most of them spherical in shape, lay there on the beach, motionless, immovable despite the tide’s best efforts to eradicate them from the shoreline. Then, a crack began to appear on the surface…
Activity 1 – Please complete the following questions based on the picture and story starter.
Where might these objects have come from?
Why is the surface of the nearest object cracking?
What is inside the objects? Are all of the objects the same?
What will happen next?
If you came across one of these, how would you react?
Do these objects remind you of anything?
Why have these objects landed on the beach? Is it by chance or is it deliberate?
Verbs are action/doing words.
Look at my writing below. Can you locate the verbs and replace them with more exciting vocabulary? Can you add some adverbs to the sentences too?
Out of nowhere, oddly shaped objects came down from the sky. They went into the sand with a loud thump. A group of people walking along the beach saw the objects, and walked towards them. A crack went on the surface, and the gathering crowd made a noise.
