Today, you will continue looking at diary entries; focusing on the 'Diary of a Lively Labrador'. Remember, if you don't have a printer, use paper and write it down. 


1. Read Diary of a Lively Labrador by Ruth Merttens up to the end of page 8
                   o Read the story aloud, using good expression to read what is said.
                   o What do you think the mouse and Boof-Head talk about?


2. Write a conversation using speech bubbles
                   o Decide on a topic of conversation for the two animals (for example cheese, Moonboom the cat, The Princess, flowers in the garden…)
                   o Using the ‘Mouse and Boof-Head in conversation’ sheet write down a conversation between the two creatures (save this work somewhere safe –you will need it tomorrow).


3. Read the rest of Diary of a Lively Labrador
                  o Use a dictionary to find the meaning of any words you don’t know.
                  o Write the part that you liked best in the diary. Give some reasons why it was the best bit.



Try the Fun-Time Extras
o Imagine you are an animal (it could be your own pet or an imaginary pet) and write a short diary extract in the first person. Include an exciting event to make it interesting to read.
