English work for w.c. 11.5.20


You are to watch the video on BBC Bitesize 'Mr Badger' (the link is above). The video talks about Mole and Badger, who are both underground dwellers, who go on a walk around the various tunnels of his home.


Your job is to draw a map showing Mr Badgers home with the various tunnels underneath, making sure that one of the tunnels come out at the Wild Wood.


You then need to write a set of instructions showing how Mole and Badger would get from Mr Badgers house to the Wild Wood.

Examples of underground tunnels - Could you think of a more creative way of showing the tunnels?
