Please note that this week's learning is a  topic about Mental Health.  This can be a very sensitive subject for many reasons but it is something we all have and we need to understand that it changes at different points in our life as we are faced with what life throws at us.  Whilst doing work on this, please be aware that adults or other family members in your home may sometimes struggle with their mental health.  Please be very polite and respectful during this learning.

Day 2



Read chapter 2

Or listen ,

Retrieve and infer

In Chapter Two, we learnt quite a bit about the

narrator and his best friend, Gaia. Your task is to

create a mind map about Gaia and the narrator.

The mind map should contain facts that you’ve

retrieved from Chapter 2 for example ‘Gaia liked

the rain’.


You should also try and add information that you

have interpreted for example “Her face broke into

a smile first.” She’s good fun to be around. She likes

a joke with her friend. She isn’t moody. She isn’t

precious about her appearance.
