Reading comprehension – ‘Listen to the Moon’ by Michael Morpurgo
- Use a dictionary to find the definition of:
- Find and copy a word that shows the noise that Alfie hears is a sad one.
- What is the relationship between Jim and Alfie?
- How do you know that Alfie spends a lot a time out on the coast?
- Have Alfie and Jim just arrived or have they been out for a while? How do you know?
- Why do you think that Alfie whispers to his father at the end of the extract?
- Why do you think the writer has started with the line, “It was a long while later that Alfie first heard it.”? What mood does this create?
- Why do you think the author describes the weed as “waving mockingly”?
- Why might Jim think that is not possible for a child to be on the island?
Paper Helicopter Investigation
Today you are going to look at the effects of air resistance and gravity. You are going to make a paper helicopter. A helicopter hovers in the air as it propellers rotate. Use the template below and follow the instructions to create a paper helicopter that spins as it slowly falls to the ground.
Time how long your helicopter takes to fall to the ground. Can you make one that falls more slowly? Think about forces of gravity and air resistance which we have looked at the last two weeks and how you can use them to make the helicopter fall slower.
When you have completed the helicopter, draw a picture of it and explain how you have made it fall slower.
Relax, enjoy a story to yourself and reflect on your day.
I am proud of your efforts.
