Oliver and the Seawigs


LO: TBAT make predictions


Imagine it

Think about Mr Culpeper’s warning to Oliver:

‘And now you had best get back to shore, or you will be a wanderer too…

…Not all islands stay where you put them. Some move about. Here one minute, gone the next. This is one of them.’


Imagine you are Oliver, with the rucksack of Useful Things you have packed, and Mr Culpeper for company and the island does start to wander. What do you think will happen next? Where do you think the island might be going?

What do you think it might be like to travel on a moving island?

Do you think you have any control over where you are heading?


Write about what happens next, for someone else to read. You may choose to do this in drawing and writing, or on the computer if you have access to one.


Maybe you would like to send your work to your teacher.


Lesson 5 – Friday Maths challenge BBC bite size Questions 1, 2, 3 and 4 See a sheet in resource section No need to print

Oliver and the Seawigs


LO: TBAT give reasons for/explain your answer


Create it

In this extract and in the book, Oliver is looking for his missing parents. They are explorers. Just before the passage above, we are told Oliver ‘ran back to the explorer mobile and packed a rucksack with Useful Things’. What do you think might be in this rucksack? 


Think about what you might pack if you were about to set off on an expedition, especially at short notice. You could look around your own room now and see what stands out that might be useful or comforting to have with you, but remember: you’ll have to carry it!


Write a list with reasons for taking each item, or you could sketch the bag and its contents and write notes next to each item.

LO - TBAT explain how Roman roads were made.


Although roads and tracks existed before the Romas came to Britain they were the first people to build roads using a variety of material that made the roads long lasting and easier to travel on by foot or with carts.
