In English, we have been learning about fantasy stories. We are looking at the story of Maleficent. The children are really enjoying sequencing their story on a story mountain and story board and have produced some impressive setting and character description work! We will then be using all the sentence work we have carried out to retell the story in detail. 
In English, we have been using the video clip 'The Blue Umbrella' as inspiration for our diary writing. We watched the clip several times and thought about a day in the life of the blue umbrella from the video. We used hot-seating to discuss how the blue and red umbrella were feeling at different points in the clip and used this discussion to come up with ideas for our diary writing. We created some fantastic pieces of diary writing and really enjoyed pretending to be a different character!
