Hi Primary 3,

This week my story for you is ‘Paddington Bear’.

And below are the follow on activities you can do. Try to do at least two over the week. This week your handwriting task links to the book, so make sure you complete that task as well.

Paddington Bear Reading Comprehension

  1. Where does Mrs Brown say Peru is?
  2. Why do they call the bear Paddington?
  3. Where do the Brown’s live?
  4. How does Lucy describe Mrs Bird?
  5. What was the first thing Paddington did in the bathroom?
  6. Would you like a bear to come and live with you? And why?

Appologies, I made a mistake on the comprehension located on the school website. Question 4 should be ‘How does Lucy describe Mrs Bird?’.  (Not Mrs Brown)

Wonderful Writer  Find out some facts about Peru and create an information poster all about the country.

Book Review Print out the book review and complete (or create your own version)

Word Wizard Find out the dictionary definition of the following words and write them in your own sentence: stowaway, Left Luggage, marmalade, bitterly, earnestly

Artistic Ace Draw a picture to represent part of the story and write at least 2 sentences to describe your drawing.

Handwriting Find out Copy out the following passage in your neatest handwriting or you can practice your typing skills. Then add an illustration.

Mr and Mrs Brown first met Paddington on a railway platform. In fact, that was how he came to have such an unusual name for a bear, because Paddington was the name of the station. The Browns were waiting to meet their daughter, Judy, when Mr Brown noticed something small and furry near the LEFT LUGGAGE office. “It looks like a bear,” he said.
