Year 2: Reading Gladiators Home tasks….

What better way to start Reading Gladiators than with a mystery….. I am so proud of the way you all contributed today and how you were thinking outside of the box. I was impressed with all of your great ideas and reasoning. To continue with this weeks session, I have set you a couple of small tasks……

HOME TASKS

-Look out for signs and notices when you are out and about- discuss why they are there. Let me know in the comments below what you have found and why you think they are there.

-Ask your adults whether they would cross a line if it said ‘DO NOT CROSS!’

Make a prediction, What do you think the book we are going to read is called?

  1. I saw a sign that had a a bend and a red line through it which is telling drives on the road do not turn right.

    I saw a yellow sign that had CCTV written on it and a camera drawn on it. I think this is there so people know cameras are there and they are safe.

    I have a sign on my door that says knock before you enter please. This is here so people know to knock.

    I asked my mum if she would cross a line that said “DO NOT CROSS”. My mum said she would not cross as there could be danger ahead.

    I predict that we will read a book about rules and warnings.

  2. I saw a sign that said “stop” and I thinks to tell people or cars to stop there.
    My adult said they would not cross a line if it said “do not cross”.
    I think the book will be called “Roads”.

  3. I didn’t see a stop sign.
    My Mum said she would not cross the line if it said stop or do not cross.
    I think the book called do not cross.

  4. I saw a round red sign with a line which means DO NOT ENTER.
    My parents would not cross if it said ‘DO NOT CROSS’
    I predict the book will be called ‘DO NOT CROSS’ or ‘HOW TO CROSS’

    • Well done, Madeeha!
      Where did you find this sign? Who is it telling not to enter?
      A great prediction, wait until the Reading Gladiators next session and you will find out if you predicted correctly.

  5. I predict that the line is there because it’s warning them not to cross to keep the children safe.I think the book will be called Beware and take care.

  6. I went to asda and I seen a sign saying wear masks in the store and a sign that said stay two metres apart social distancing. I think signs are important they can be information or warnings
    My mum would never cross sign that says do not cross.

    I think the book might be called the investigator

    • Well done, Delilah.
      I’ve seen these signs too. Did you see people wearing them? Were people following the rules?
      I think you are right, they could be giving us important information…what do you think would happen if we didn’t do as the signs say?

      Oooh, a very good prediction, Delilah. You’ll have to wait until Friday to find out what the book is called….Exciting!

  7. I saw some signs saying, Warning do not enter, Stop and Danger.
    My parents would never cross a line, if it said Do Not Cross.
    I think the book will be called Do Not Cross?

    • Great! Where were these signs?
      Was it just text or did they include images?
      Do you agree with you parents?
      A great prediction, Khadijah. Wait until Friday and you’ll find out if you predicted correctly.

  8. I think it is there because when cars go past the people will have to
    stop they have to cross when the man is green and the trafic jam is red
    Once I thought a sign what says don’t cross I keep seeing it a lot of
    times

    From Tobi H

    • Although your not a Reading Gladiator, it’s still great to see you commenting on the blog.
      Thank you Tobi.😁
      You are describing Traffic lights, these are a great example of a sign.
      Why do we have traffic lights?

  9. I went with my mum to the shop and I seen a sign with a man inside and a line across. That means DO NOT CROSS.

    I asked my mum if she would cross the line if it said DO NOT CROSS and she said no because it may be dangerous.

    I think the book might be called DO NOT CROSS or maybe STOP!

    • Thank you for commenting, Mustafa.
      I think your mum may be right, sometimes signs are put up to protect us from dangers so it is important to listen to and do as they say.

      I think you have made a great prediction, on Friday The Reading Gladiators will find out what their book is called, you will have to ask them to see if you were right.

    • Your mum is very sensible Aryan, I wouldn’t cross either.
      A great prediction, wait until Friday and The Reading Gladiators will tell you what their book is called.

  10. why are they there) and why does it say DO NOT CROSS?
    Maybe because a boy went in the girls toilet to do something?
    2) an adult went to the toilet and rubbed it on a potato?
    3) I think the book is what we might be reading is information to NOT cross there and tell us a bit of it why? A dangerous thing might of happened in the toilets?… and the fire exit might of been it because when we all finished our lunch we never saw DO NOT CROSS so it might of been an adults foult?

  11. 1.When I went somewhere I saw a sign that said Do not cross.
    2.My mum said she would not cross if there was a sign of Do not cross.
    3.I think the book is going to be called Do not cross.

      I think that is a good prediction, Hamsia… you’ll have to wait and see I’m Friday 😉

      • Where was this sign?
        The sign was outside near the road.
        Why do you think it was there?
        Because there might be a crime.
        Did it look like the one in school?
        It did not look like the one at school.
