In today's lesson you will be reading Chapter 3 of The Abominables and then completing a short activity.


Firstly, read the vocabulary below before reading the chapter as these words appear in the chapter.


glacier - a slow moving mass of ice

tarpaulin - a heavy, waterproof cloth

altitude - the height of an object above sea level of ground level.

boulder - a large rock

tussock - a dense clump or tuft or grass


Secondly, read the chapter. To help you with your reading, Mr Griffiths reads the chapter in two parts and these videos are also below.


Finally, your short task is to write to choose two of the yetis we have met so far. Remember we have met Dad, Uncle Otto, Grandma, Lucy, Ambrose and Clarence. You then need to write a sentence describing who these yetis are. How are they related? How did we meet them in the book? Use this to task to help you recap what has happened in the book so far. You don't need to submit this work but use it to refresh your knowledge about the yetis and what has happened in the book so far.
