An Icy Plunge

An Icy Plunge

Question time!

Where is the pup’s mother?

What animal is she?

What might she have learnt already from her mother?

How old is the pup?

Do you remember learning to swim? What were the biggest challenged you had to overcome?

Will the pup be brave enough the enter?

How is it that some animals are better swimmers than others?

How do you think it would feel to swim in that water?

Would you be able to do it?

Perfect picture!

Imagine you have dived down into the water. Can you draw what you might be able to see?

Story starter!

The young pup peered down into the icy water below with a growing feeling of trepidation. Only a few days old, she had learnt so much already from watching her mother, but this challenge was her greatest so far.

How would it feel to be submerged? What would she find lurking underneath the surface? How would ever she get back onto dry land?

Questions flooded her mind like a torrent of icy water, but bravely she inched closer to the edge…

Sentence challenge!

Can you use relative clauses to add extra information to a sentence using who, which, where, when, whose or that?

E.g. The pup, who was only a few days old, prepared for the icy plunge.

Her fur, , was white.

The water, , was turquoise.

Sick sentences!

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

The pup lay on the snow. She looked at the water. It was a sunny day. It was cold.
