Task 1 - listen and read with Mrs Clinch

The lovely Mrs Clinch has kindly recorded a video of herself reading the 'Diary of a Wombat' by Jackie French.  This is our focus text for this week. Please click on the Loom link below:

Task 2 - Past Tense Verbs

How many past tense verbs can you find in this book?  Make a list of all of them.


Task 2 - Preparing to Write / Hot-seating

Imagine that you are the wombat from the book.  How do you feel?  What are you thinking?  Ask a grown-up to interview you, asking you questions like: 'How did you feel when....?'  'What is your favourite food?'  'Why do you keep demanding things?'


After the hot-seating, see if you can complete the planning sheet below.
