This half term we will be looking at Fantasy stories in English, we want the children to be able to identify the different components of a fantasy story and to be able to plan and write a fantasy story of their own.
To help the children with fantasy we would like them this week to watch a variety of Mr Benn stories on Youtube. We find the children always love Mr Benn and get very excited about all the different adventures he goes on. Please watch some of the adventures with your child and ask them questions about the adventure,
* Where does Mr Benn live?
* Where does his adventure always start?
* How many different characters are in the story?
*Who works in the shop?
*What does he always bring back from his adventure?
*If you could go on an adventure, where would you like to go?
*What costume would you like to put on? Why?
