Marvel and gasp at all the things Floyd threw into the tree that got stuck! Can you remember them all at the end of the story? Look back/listen again to check.
Today you are going to write your own version of Stuck. Think about:
Who will your main character be?
What items will he/she throw into the tree that will get stuck? (Remember to start with everyday things, before your list becomes more imaginative! You can make your list as funny and as quirky as you like!)
What will be the last item thrown that will mean the kite comes unstuck?
Make a list or series of pictures to act as a plan.
You may choose to use some of Oliver Jeffers’ sentence starters, e.g.
It all began when …
The trouble REALLY began when …
In order to knock down …
You could also use or make comments as he does too, e.g.
This was getting ridiculous!
Unbelievably, that got stuck too!
I’m sure you can guess what happened!
Write your story, checking each sentence as you write. Keep going back and reading your story out loud to check you are happy with it.
