There are lots of recipes available online if you want to have a go yourself at home - you will need to visit the supermarket in order to get some quite specific ingredients.

Today we will be using our learning to write a short dialogue between some of the characters from the short animation 'Little Boat'. You can re-watch the film by following the link below.
There are two section within the film where we see two monkeys on the boat and they are chatting away to each other.
Near the beginning of the Little Boats journey - could they be arguing about something?
Again toward the end of the Little Boat's journey when he has been damaged almost beyond repair - could they be discussing how they could help?
Choose one point in the story and write the dialogue between the monkeys at this point in the story. Remember to punctuate your writing accurately.

Have a game of spelling battleships - your will need to find someone to play with. It is great fun!
You will need to print off the grid below or create one using some squared paper. When you have your grid you will need to hide 3 of this week's homophone in the grid - they can be written forwards, backwards, upwards, downward or diagonally. When your words are hidden you are ready to play.
Player one begins by identifying a square on the grid by saying the co-ordinate (remember along the corridor and up the stairs) If their is a letter hidden there in player 2's grid it is a hit, if not it is a miss. the aim of the game is to sink your opponents battleships by identifying all the letters of their spelling words - Good Luck!
