In class we have been reading ‘The Diary of a Killer Cat and the children have been loving hearing about the naughty things that Tuffy has been doing, including bringing inside lots of nearby animals. So far, we have heard of him bringing in a feathery flutterball – a bird! Listen and follow along to Chapter 4 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR3YzigE6-o and write down any new words that you have not heard of before. Pause the video and find out what they mean.
Can you pause the video, find the words in the sentences and discuss their meaning using the sentences to help you?
