A New Herd

Question time!

Why does the cow want to move home?

What could have been going wrong for her recently?

What does a cow pack in a suitcase?

What do you think the bus will be like when it arrives?

If you were the cow, how would you be feeling?

Have you heard the expression “the grass is always greener” before? What does it mean?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw the bus? Is it the same as a normal bus or is it different in some way?

Story starter!

Things just weren’t the same in the field anymore. Daisy had often scoffed at the expression “the grass is always greener on the other side”, but in this instance she hoped it was true.

Sentence challenge!

Can you make the following sentences longer by adding a subordinate clause?

Can you use one of the following conjunctions: but, or, yet, so?

e.g. This had once been a happy place, but everything had changed.

The sun was shining,

Daisy was tired,

Her suitcase didn't have much inside,

Sick sentences!

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

The cow stood. She was brown. She felt sad.
