First, use the template in the following file to create a Paddington mask.
Whilst you are creating your mask, watch a BBC Super Movers video about question marks and exclamation marks by clicking on the following image...
In your Homework books I'd like you to write down lots of interesting questions you would like to ask Paddington Bear.
Don't forget to:
- Number each question
- Start each question with a capital letter
- End each question with a question mark.
- Use the question hand below to pick different question openers?
Hot seating activity...
Miss Lynch will wear her mask and take on the role of Paddington whilst the children ask their questions.
Next, different children will pretend to be Paddington and everyone else can ask questions.
With different people pretending to be Paddington, children might ask the same questions but get very different answers!
In your books, write the answers to your questions in full sentences (number them so the answers match the questions).
Finally, how would you describe Paddington in 3 words?

Learning objective (title for books): To plan a Paddington adventure/a story with a beginning, middle (problem) and ending (resolution).
PowerPoint for today's lesson...
Chapter Two- A BEAR IN HOT WATER
Paddington meets Judy's brother Jonathan and Mrs. Bird, the Browns' housekeeper, who decides Paddington is badly in need of a bath. The only problem is that he has never experienced taps or plugs before and Jonathan and Judy soon need to go to his rescue when water starts dripping through the sitting room ceiling.
Watch the following film clip to see what happens when Paddington takes a bath...
Use the document in the file below to plan your own Paddington problem/adventure story like the one in this chapter (A Bear in Hot Water).
Steps to success:
- Think of an interesting title - A Bear in Hot Water
- Use the three boxes on the sheet to tell the different parts of the story.
- In the first box write what Paddington wants to do (an ordinary household task)
- In the second box write what goes wrong (because something usually does when Paddington's around!)
- In the third box write how it all ends up.
- Interesting sentence openers that order the events – Early in the morning, When the sun went down, First, Next, Secretly, Later, Suddenly, e.t.c
- Capitals and full stops.
- Include character feelings
- Descriptive vocabulary and wow words (ambitious vocabulary)
- Conjunctions - because, however, but, so, although, e.t.c
- Beautiful, neat handwriting.
