Yes! it's Gangsta Granny time again! We get to listen to Lady Duncan of 3D whisk us away to a fantasy world of mysteries and wonder.
And today, you will notice that Granny has left us a recipe for a rather delicious tasting Cabbage cake (yuck!).
This has given me an idea. I would like you to create instructions for the most disgusting cake or meal imaginable. It needs to have imperative verbs to tell me how to make it and I would like a list of ingredients to start with.
Please can you also add a picture so I can see just how disgusting your creation is going to be!
Can't wait, maybe I can make one on the live stream!

Here is Chapter 17 of Gangsta Granny by David Walliams. Read along with Miss Duncan and then have a go at answering the questions below the video. You are in for a treat today - Miss Duncan attempts a French accent AND a Spanish accent but - HA HA HA - they sound they same! Oh well - it's a bit of fun!
Now have a think about these questions. You can either write down your answers or you can just discuss them with someone in your family.
1. How does Ben plan to break into the Tower of London?
2. In order to understand the story you need to know what a sewage pipe is. Look up in a dictionary, or research on the internet to find out what sewage is.
3. What do you think Granny will think of Ben's plan to use a sewage pipe to get into the Tower of London?
4. Why did Ben do extra press-ups in PE? (Page 152)
5. What other lessons did Ben have at school?
6. The last sentence of the chapter is: 'They were going to get away with the crime of the century!' What does this tell us about how Ben feels about his plan?
