Hi Year 2
We hope you have a wonderful day!
Here are today’s learning activities.
English – Reading
Reread the following text.
Silently a group of orphans sleep in an orphanage.
Quietly, the window shutters open and in crawls a mysterious creature. He doesn’t look too friendly at first but we soon see what his plan is.
This is the Dreamgiver and by cracking his dream eggs he makes sure the childrens’ nights are pleasurable. He creates the dreams by cracking the eggs onto stories, posters and ballet shoes.
Answer the following questions:
- Why is he described as ‘mysterious’?

- What do you think happens if an egg smashes?
