Watch singer Ashley Roberts read an extract from Cake.

Think about the following:

  • What does Cake receive at the start of the extract?

  • Has Cake ever been to a party before?

  • What does Fish suggest to Cake?


Activity 1

Below is a list of the events that happen in extract 2.

Number the events 1 to 4 in the order that they happened.

Look back at the extract to help you. The first event has been numbered for you.

Event Order
Cake showed Fish the hat  
Cake went to the party  
Everyone cheered when Cake arrived  
Cake went home with his new hat 1


Activity 2

Can you design a new hat for Cake?

When Cake goes to the hat shop, he tries on lots of hat designs – small hats, big hats, pointy hats, flat hats, a hat with a feather and even a hat with a fruit bowl on it! He decides to buy a hat with candles on.

Draw your design first and then label it with arrows and write a short description of your hat.

You could design a few hats for Cake. Think about what type of hat Cake could wear to:

  • go to a party

  • go shopping

  • go to school

  • play a sport in

  • have a shower
