Year Three are challenging themselves to to explore lots of different text types this half term. We would like you to follow the link below to read a play by Julia Donaldson entitled ‘The Sockosaurus’. You can read this yourself, or even ask the computer to read it for you! See if you can use different voices for different characters.
Bronze Challenge: Read this play with a grown up/brother or sister at home. Which part did you play? How did you change your voice to suit each role?
Silver Challenge: “Sockosaurus is a sensible character in the play.” Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why?
Gold Challenge: Explain the effectiveness of the repeated use of exclamation marks throughout this play. What effect do they have on the reader? How did your reading change? What does this tell us about the characters?
Platinum Challenge: Continue the play to explain what happened next on Christmas Eve using your own ideas.
