Here are some sentences to help:

They've all come to help me with the lighthouse. 

You'll be the best writer one day!

I've been missing my Nan a lot so I'll be going to visit her soon.


 

Activities:

 

Monday-  Make predictions about the story.

Watch the video up to the title screen (pause at 33 seconds). Can you guess what the film is going to be about?  Are there any clues? What can you see? How might the story make you feel? Write sentences to describe! 


Tuesday Ask questions about the story. 

Watch the rest of the video and create some questions about the story.

Question examples: Why is the man alone? Why does he keep closing his window? What are the people celebrating? How did the man feel when they helped him? Why did they decide to help him?


Wednesday Design your own lighthouse and label it with descriptions.

What does your lighthouse look like? What colour is it? How high it is? What does it overlook? What is it made of? Does your lighthouse have any secret passages? Who lives in this lighthouse?

Remember to use adjectives!


Thursday - Write a newspaper story of the event.

What is the name of your newspaper? What will your heading be? Who are the main characters? What happened first? Then what happened? How did the people feel? Did they give any comments?


 

 Friday - Write a letter to the lighthouse keeper.

The lighthouse keeper must be lonely. What do you want to tell him? How is the view from all the way up there? Are you scared of heights? Is it very windy? Does the city look beautiful at night will all the lights?
