'A sardine tin in the wildest place in the world. That's all.'


Today we are going to write queries, an inference and a theory about the sentence above. I love this chapter because it ends on such an explosive moment. It's not a huge cliffhanger that leaves you on the edge of your seat, but it's one of those lines that lingers on your mind and the more you think about it, the more questions you have! 


Firstly, I would like you to write two queries. Queries are questions you might have about the sardine tin. 


Secondly, I would like you to write an inference aiming to answer where the tin came from, or what we know about the rainforest because of it's existence. 


Lastly, I want your theory. I want to know what you think: where did the sardine tin come from, what does this prove, what do you think the children will do with it, what do you think will happen next? 


An example might look like this: 



1. Was the tin rusted, or did it look new? 

2. What language is the packaging in?



I think that the tin has come from people that are exploring the Amazon Rainforest. They might be there on holiday and accidentally dropped the packaging in the river. 



I think that the children will try to find the people who owned the sardine tin. We know that there had to be people nearby because sardine tins don't grow in the wild and there are probably no villages nearby. I think the children might use the metal to create fishing hooks and catch fish- this would be much nicer than the bugs they're eating! I think the people on holiday will return and rescue the children. 



Obviously don't copy the exact same ideas, but you can borrow this structure to inspire your own ideas. Good luck! 



1. (Vocabulary)- What is a ‘maiden voyage’? 

2. (Inference)- Why is Lila cross with Fred?

3. (Explain)- Explain how Katherine Rundell shows tension in the eel scene.

4. (Retrieval)- What skill does Con reveal she has?
