How did your story writing go yesterday? Well I hope, because today you are going to improve it by adding a detailed description of one of the scenes within your story.

Watch the video again to remind yourselves of where the story takes place and then describe it. Remember, the reader of your story should be able to picture the scene without watching the video, so make it as descriptive as possible.

Art

I am going to set you an art activity for the whole of this week. I would like you to collect natural things from either a walk you go on with your family or things from your garden, and create a collage with them. It can be anything you like, maybe an animal or a woodland scene for example.

Post your pictures on Class Dojo for extra points!

Until then, stay safe and be kind
