Today, we are going to read chapter 5 of Nim’s Island.

Q1 - Who is Chica?
Q2 - Why do you think that Nim would much rather see Jack’s sails than to reply to Alex Rover?
Q3 - Why did Chica dig a hole in the sand with her flippers?
Q4 - Why was Chica the only turtle to ever swim back to the beach where she was hatched?
Q5 - How was everyone feeling the morning after Chica arrived at Turtle Beach? Why were they feeling that way?

Literacy

This week, I would like you to use what we have read about Nim so far  (you could read back through previous pages to help you, if needed) and you are going to collect words to describe Nim’s behaviour (how she behaves, what is she like as a person, what are her personality traits, etc). We will be using these words to write a character description of Nim tomorrow.

Maths

Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers.
