Question time!

Is it possible for us to touch clouds?

What are clouds made of?

Can we touch what they are made of?

What is the sky?

Where does the sky begin?

Why is the sky blue?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of a hot air balloon?

Story starter!

She pulled down on the chain with her left hand, steering herself towards her target. It was supposed to be the most exciting birthday present ever; a hot air balloon ride. However, Alice had been hanging on for dear life for over 100KM (since the basket of the hot air balloon had fallen off). She was now getting used to steering the huge balloon by manoeuvring her body, leaning to the left or to the right.

Terrified yet excited at the same time, Alice could just about make out her house and garden far below. It was the one surrounded by trees straight ahead, wasn’t it?

She took a deep breath and focused…

Can you continue the story about Alice and the hot air balloon? Will she reach the ground safely? Will she land in the right garden?

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a sentence that uses an apostrophe for omission?

E.g.

cannot = can’t

have = I’ve

he will= he’ll

she is= she’s

we have= we’ve

will not = won’t

Can you write a sentence that uses an apostrophe for possession?

E..g. Alice’s heart Alice’s hair Alice’s face Alice’s arms

Sick sentences!

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

Alice held on to the chains. She looked down. The trees below were small. She was scared.
