Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of two other creatures that would make unlikely friends?

Story starter!

In many ways they were so different. When they stood next to each other, the stark contrast between their appearances was plain for all to see.

Appearances, however, can be deceiving. They were the best of friends….

Sentence challenge!

A preposition is a word that shows the relationship between one thing and another.

It may tell you where a thing is in relation to something else. E.g. The passengers watched from inside the plane.

It may tell you when something is in relation to another event. g. The excitement would not end until the plane landed.

Can you find any prepositions in the sentences below? Can you write 3 sentences that contain prepositions?

The donkey plodded through the field. It was only a few minutes until feeding time. Rain started to fall from above them. They ran into the ban.

Sick sentences!

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

The donkey stood next to the dog. They were friends. The dog was happy. The donkey was happy.
