Resume reading together the remainder of the opening extract to A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond (pages 7-12):
Imagine you are Paddington Bear. You are going to write a letter home to Aunt Lucy to let her know that you have arrived safely in London and are going to live with the Brown family. Think about other news you could include in your letter: e.g. Where the Brown family found you, what they have promised to feed you, the name they have given you and why, the delicious food you have eaten in the café etc.
One of the last things Aunt Lucy said to Paddington before he left for London, was to remember his manners Watch this short clip: Paddington 2 – A Guide to Being a Good Bear:
Perhaps you could include in your letter all the ways in which Paddington has shown his manners so far. There are lots of clues if you go back to the text!
Try to include some thoughts and feelings in your letter too and remember to try and reassure Aunt Lucy – otherwise she will worry!
Keep reading back through your letter to check it makes sense. Check for spellings and punctuation too.
