During "Dragon Day", some of the children were given the opportunity of playing either Joe, Maggie or the villagers from the story we read. The other members of the class put them into the hotseat and interviewed them as if they were the characters. Some excellent responses!
Re-telling the story
Here are some examples of the children's retelling of the story. We have recently learnt how to add -ed subordinate clauses into narrative writing. Can you spot them?
The children were given the task of recreating what they thought the "Gurt Wurm" looked like based on descriptions from the text. They were given some oil pastels and pencil crayons and used some blending techniques that they have learnt in Art this half term.
In English so far, we have looked at the story of Robin Hood. It is a tale of one man and his group standing up against injustice. The wicked and greedy Abbot of Nottingham is forcing people to pay higher rents. Many people are being evicted from their homes when they cannot pay what is owed.
Robin becomes an outlaw, defending the people against this cruelty. He famously "robs the rich to feed the poor" We will be doing some writing based on this story over the next few weeks.
Come back later to see our Creative Writing based on this novel.
