Imagine you have been asked to design a poster to advertise ways to poach pheasants.
Create a poster explaining the two methods Danny’s Dad describes for how to catch a pheasant, ‘The Horse-hair Stopper’ and ‘The Sticky Hat’.
Make your poster attractive by including:
- an exciting title
- labelled diagrams
- time conjunctions – First, next, after that, finally etc.
- words and phrases from the text
- eye-catching colours
- if you are feeling really creative, you could also include an additional method to poaching pheasants which you have invented!
With Mr. Garvey, Joe Wicks or your own idea. Try to get outside for a good run around and a play.
Acts of kindness
Being kind to other people helps them to feel good and it makes us feel good, too! You might have noticed sometimes, when you’ve done something kind for someone – perhaps helped them or paid them a compliment – you might have felt good inside.
Some people call it a ‘warm, fuzzy’ feeling. Well, that good feeling comes from chemicals that our brains make and it’s good for our health to feel that way. Have a think about some ways that you can help other people. Draw or write them on this poster (or do both!)
Enjoy this doing the activity set by Mrs O’Donnell.
