11:00am - 12:15pm LITERACY/READING 

Activity 1: Read Ending of 'Eric' by Shaun Tan

Ending

Nevertheless, none of us could help but be bewildered by the way Eric left our home: a sudden departure early one morning, with little more than a wave and a polite goodbye. It actually took us a while to realise he wasn’t coming back. There was much speculation over dinner later that evening. Did Eric seem upset? Did he enjoy his stay? Would we ever hear from him again? An uncomfortable feeling hung in the air, like something unfinished, unresolved. It bothered us for hours, at least until one of us discovered what was in the pantry. Go and see for yourself: it’s still there after all these years, thriving in the darkness. It’s the first thing we show any new visitors to our house. ‘Look what our foreign exchange student left for us,’ we tell them. ‘It must be a cultural thing,’ says Mum.

 

After reading the ending, can you think about the following questions:

  • What does bewildered mean? Why do you think the family bewildered?
  • Why do you think Eric chose to leave that way?
  • Have you even had the feeling of something 'unfinished'? If so, when?
  • How do you think the family felt when they saw the pantry?
  • Where do you think Eric has gone?

Activity 2: Write a letter to Eric

I want you to imagine you are the narrator of the story. First, I would like you to plan your letter to Eric. Like we do in our literacy lesson, can you think about your audience, formality and purpose for the letter in your planning time. I want you to use the story as your prompt, especially the ending. What would you write to Eric about?

 

Questions to think about:

  • What might you want to tell Eric?
  • What might you want to ask Eric?
  • What hopes might you have for Eric?

 

Please think of 3-5 points for each paragraph

 

 

Once you have planned your writing using the questions above to help you, I would like you to write your letter. Please make an effort to structure your writing in a letter format.

 

Activity 3: Practice reading the story out loud

Some of you will have listened to Eric being read to you by Ruth Merttens at the start of the week. Would you read it like she did? Is there something you would change? I would like you to have a go at reading the story out loud yourself. 

You can access the story on the link below:

If you are able to, please can you record or film yourself reading the story and upload it to your portfolio. I will attach the tutorial below for you.
