Bright Lights, Big City - Paddington Bear WB 18.05.20

Bright Lights, Big City - Paddington Bear WB 18.05.20 1

I hope you have all enjoyed learning about Her Royal Majesty, The Queen and finding out all about the Royal Family and Buckingham Palace.

For our final week of this topic we would be learning all about the adventures of Paddington Bear!

 

To begin the week we would encourage you to explore the character of Paddington bear and Michael Bond's famous stories. We would like you to create a character profile by answering the following:

  • Who is Paddington bear?
  • Why is he called Paddington?
  • Where was he born?
  • What does he look like/ What does he wear?
  • What is his favourite food?
  • Why does he need looking after?
  • What is his character like? 

 

You could also draw Paddington to help :) 

 

Paddington had a famous scrapbook, so please explore this if you have time too! We would then like you to think about all the places in London that you think Paddington would like to visit. It would be a good idea to represent this as a list in your yellow book. If you are writing a list then don't forget those bullet points!

 

Once you have found out all about Paddington Bear your task is by the end of the week is to write a letter to Aunt Lucy as Paddington Bear persuading her to come and visit London! Remember your letter must have the following:

  • At the start of your letter it needs to be addressed to Aunt Lucy using Dear/To
  • Use Every Time Writing Rules throughout
  • Must be persuasive, so you really need to think of some amazing adjectives to describe London!
  • At the end of your letter it needs to be addressed from Paddington because remember you are writing as Paddington

 

If you have time and are able to your parents/carers may even let you watch the film of Paddington Bear! It is a personal favourite of Miss Needham's. 

 

Please remember to send your amazing fact files into class dojo so that they can be shared with both your class teachers and your peers :)
