What do you think it’s like living on the back of a tortoise?

What sort of places would it take you to?

Perfect picture!

Imagine you could live on the back of a giant animal. Can you draw what the perfect animal-house would look like?

Story starter!

It’s always difficult moving house, but not usually as slow as this. Sometimes they regretted buying a house on top of a giant tortoise. It did, however, have some benefits…

Sentence challenge!

A parenthesis is a word or a phrase put into a sentence to give it more information.

Sometimes a parenthesis is in italics, sometimes it is in (brackets), sometimes there is a dash – and sometimes it has ‘inverted commas’ around it.

Parentheses are used to:

Explain what a difficult word means.

Show someone’s thoughts

Add extra information to help the reader

Emphasise a point

Can you use brackets to add extra information?

E.g. His shell (being completely covered in grass) made for a comfortable home.

Sick sentences!

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

The tortoise moved across the ground. He had skin and a big shell.
