Use the extract to find the answers. The questions go in the order of the extract.

  2. Why did Maisie say it was weird?

  3. Where did the children sit?

  4. What is Maisie terrified of?

  5. What is the evil dinner monitor called?

 

Now watch the second video 

 

Activity 2

Watch the video again and think about what happens 

  1. . What do you think are the important events?

If you could only tell your friend three things that happened, what would they be?

  1. Record the three most important things that happen in the extract. Select things from the beginning, the middle and the ending of the extract.

Important thing from the beginning of the text - ......................................................

Important thing from the middle of the text - ......................................................

Important thing from the ending of the text - ......................................................

 

Activity 3

  1. Watch the ending of the second extract again:

Nobody was sure what to do next so we decided to wait until lunch the next day to see if the eyes were in our water jug again.

What do you think the children should do? What advice would you give to them?

  1. Choose a child who you want to advise – Izzy, Maisie, Zach or Jodie.

  2. Draw a speech bubble and write your advice inside to them.

Top tip!

  • You should call the person you are advising ‘you’.

  • You might use this to start you off:

............................................, (insert name of who you are writing to) I think that you should ............................................ because .............................................

You could also ............................................ or .............................................

  • Think about how you will end your advice – maybe Good luck or Take Care
