English- Explanations

In our new English topic we have learnt how to read and write explanations. We have learnt our new model text ‘How to look after a monster’ based on the book ‘ Monsters: An Owner’s Guide’.

During the week we designed and created our own monsters from play dough while following the explanation. We also had an unexpected visitor one morning from a monster who had not been looked after properly. This taught us the importance of reading explanations carefully by following the ‘Do’s and Dont’s’.

Here are some of the monsters we created:

How you can help at home:

  • Design a monster and describe it with adjectives
  • Write an explanation of how to look after your monster
