Question of the Week – Picture Puzzles!

1 Edit Dingbat Collage

The Question of the Week is back again!

This week, we are asking you to look at the pictures above. There are 3 separate puzzles which are each trying to tell us a word.

For example, the answer for the puzzle down below is ‘3 MUSKETEERS’ because the words ‘Must Get Here’ are written 3 times!

Take your time and look at the pictures above. The first person to guess all 3 mystery words will earn a written homework pass. Best of luck!

Summer is finally here!…well, we think! The weather has been a little unusual!

This week, we are asking you to describe the weather in a sentence with only 5 words.

You are only allowed to use 5 words, no more no less! For example, if it was very sunny, your answer could be “Even Mr. Sun needs sunglasses!” The funnier and wittier it is, the better!

Take your time and write a short and funny weather forecast. Choose weather from last week or on the day you are posting your comment. Remember, the winner gets a night off written homework. Good luck everyone!
