Guided Reading and English:
Cake has been invited to a party and he is very excited as he has never been to one before. He tries on different outfits and shows them to Fish. He goes shopping for a new hat and buys – candles! When he gets to the party, everyone is so happy to see him and they sit Cake on the table. He is having a great time until the lights go out and everyone starts to sing…
Watch singer Ashley Roberts read the first extract from Cake. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhqr47h
Think about the following:
What does Cake receive at the start of the extract?
Has Cake ever been to a party before?
What does Fish suggest to Cake?
Now watch Ashley read another extract from Cake and think about the following:
How is Cake feeling on his way to the party?
What happens when Cake gets to the party?
Read extract 1 and try this activity.
Now read extract 2 and try this activity.
Read the sentences below and answer the questions.
Cake was soon on his way to the party, dressed in his new hat.
Which word describes Cake’s hat? ...............................................
Cake was a bit nervous when he arrived.
Which word shows how Cake was feeling? ...............................................
But when everyone saw him, they cheered.
Which word shows what everybody did when they saw Cake? ...............................................
Now look at your answers to the questions above.
Can you think of a word that means the same or similar to your answer?
Can you think of a word that means the opposite of your answer?
Read the second extract again.
Whilst Cake is on his way to the party, he sings a song:
'Deedly-dee, deedly-dum, I’m off to a party to have some fun!'
The author has used some real words and some made up words.
The author has also made the song rhyme – 'dum' and 'fun'.
Write another verse for Cake to sing on his way to the party.
You can make your song rhyme if you want to, but it doesn’t have to.
Remember to be as creative as you want!
