Defeat The Monster!

Our new Literacy unit is based on a Defeat the Monster story and we are focusing on how to create suspense in our writing. P4 started with a Wow Starter...watching an animation clip which built suspense and using one of our Cooperative Learning Strategies - Inside Outside Circle - to explore what it was that made it so effective. We have created some monsters of our own and used our interesting vocabulary to describe them carefully. Some imaginative creatures which I have a feeling might start appearing in our innovated stories soon.
