On Monday we read a story called Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne.
An online version to read is here
We had a debate about each character and how they related to each other. One of the questions I asked was "Does having lots of money make you happy?"
In today's Big Write the children had to become the voice of Charles or Smudge and retell their version of going to the park.
Look at Y4 concentrating hard during their BIG WRITE session.
If we had scratch and sniff blogging you would be able to smell the wonderful aroma the children can always smell during Big Write.
Here are some examples of writing.
Some questions to consider;
What do we know about the 4 characters?
Why don't the adults talk to each other?
Why do the children talk to each other?
Are these people part of the same community?
How do the pictures tell the story?
What other questions could you ask?
