Wide-eyed

Wide-eyed

Question time!

Why are the bird’s eyes open so wide?

How are a wasp’s eyes different to a bird’s?

Which creature do you think is fastest?

Which creature would you rather be?

Why do you think wasps are yellow?

Why do you think birds’ beaks are often curved?

Perfect picture!

Imagine you can see through the wasp’s eyes. Can you draw what he can see?

Story starter!

Out of the corner of his eye he could see it: the bird had spotted him. Continuing to beat his wings ferociously, managing to continue flying in a straight line (despite the feeling of panic), the wasp thought about how he could escape the situation. He had been in many close shaves before, but none quite so close as this.

He knew the bird would strike at any moment, lunging at him with its razor-sharp beak…

Can you continue the story? You could write it from the perspective of the bird or the wasp.

Sentence challenge!

Can you use a colon to start a list? Remember to use commas to separate the items in your list!

E.g. The bird’s feathers displayed a range of different colours: brown, black, white and gold.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?

The bird watched the wasp. It had a big beak and green eyes. The sun shone on the bird’s feathers.
