Choose three that describe how the fox could be feeling.  Write these into sentences using ‘because’ to explain why.

E.g: The fox is hungry because it is searching the bins.

Have a think about all of the things that make you amazing!  What are you good at?  How are you a great friend?  What have you got better at? Do you have a special talent?  What makes you feel proud of yourself?

Use the attached hot air balloon and fill in the balloons using the sentence starters to help you.

If you do not have a printer then you could draw your own bunch of balloons and fill each balloon with something that makes you amazing!
