I will be reading a chapter of our class story, The Explorer, each day and posting it here on this page along with the illustrations and some ideas you could try at home. Enjoy!

What do you think happened to the old pilot?
Why do you think the girl was trying hard not to look out of the window?
Where was the plane travelling to?
Why not research this city to find out more about it?
How would you describe Con's character?
Why not colour in the snake that Fred nearly stood on?
Who discovered the den? How do you think they felt?
Why didn't Con want to go inside the den? How do you think she felt?
Why not try building your own den at home?
Who found the second trail of ants to follow?
Why did Con tie one of the ruffles from her top to a tree branch?
Who hadn't learnt to swim?
Why not find out more about piranha?
You could make your own mini raft by collecting sticks either from your garden or while you're out getting your daily exercise. Test our your raft in a sink or at bath time!

Think you've been listening carefully? Why not try the EXPLORER QUIZ!
(This one is very easy but I will make a harder one if you like doing quizzes)
Well done Sammy and Ivy for having a go at the quiz already!
- THE END -
I hope you have enjoyed listening to our story. It is one of my favourite children's books! I would love to know what you think of it. Can you write a book review sharing your opinions? You could use the template below which is the same one we use in class (this can be printed by clicking on the link) or create your own!
