This week in English we’re going to be developing the plot of our story by introducing our characters: the wolf and the human. This section will be about the wolf approaching the young human in the forest. We will think carefully about what these characters are like, and how we can use good vocabulary choices to really help the reader understand them.
Today we will be retrieving information about the wolf in our story, to help us build a character profile of him. Begin by watching the video below which you can access on the video resource centre, as I model through how to find information about him. When you have watched the video, head over to Purple Mash to complete the task labelled – Monday 25th English.
Today you will be using adverbs and verbs to describe a character’s motive. We will be focusing on the wolf, thinking carefully about how he moves and interacts with other characters.

When you have worked your way through, and watched the YouTube video as explained in the lesson, head over to Purple Mash and complete the task labelled- Tuesday 26th English.
Today we will be using dialogue, description and action to think about the wolf’s interactions with the young human. A good story includes a balance of each.
