Year 4 – Creative writing
In our English lessons, children are learning how to write an effective story with a moral. We are using the story of Aladdin as inspiration.
Children chose their own setting of where they wanted their main character to get trapped (rather than a cave). We used high level vocabulary for the stories, using lots of different adjectives and phrases around a picture of their setting, in relation to the five senses.
Children now have lots of great ideas for what their main character might hear, see, touch, smell and taste, whilst they are trapped in their scary location.
