Talk about fireworks with an adult – What’s the best fireworks you’ve ever seen? What colour would they be? What music would accompany them? How would they explode? What shape in the sky would they make? Where would you be? Think about if you could invent a firework what would it be called? What would it contain? What colour would it be? How would it explode?

Listen to Chapter 2 pages 15 to 17 to explore the character Lila and think about these questions – What is Lila like? How has she changed from the start of the story? Do you like her? Why? Is she right to leave, why?
Learning activity at home – Write a character profile of Lila using frame:
At the beginning she is…. She wants to…. When she finds out about the secret ingredients she is…..
Now think about the events in chapter 1 & 2 – How would you feel if you were Lachland and had read Lila’s letter? Can you think of some questions you might as Lila if you met her?
Think about the previous session where we found out Lila was planning to leave home. Can you come up with some questions you might ask Lachland?
Learning activity at home – Write a letter to Lila as Lachland.
Focus on describing how Lachland felt about Lila. Try to use more ambitious vocabulary related to feelings (NOT JUST SAD!) Explaining why he felt like this.
