Watch the video to learn about making a word bank of adjectives to describe the Head Witch in the story A Magical Muddle.
To use adjectives
Challenge 1: draw a picture of the animal that you think the Head Witch was turned into by trainee witch Tabitha. You can use the attached photo frame if you want to print it out or just draw it in your home learning book.
Challenge 2: like on the video, can you think of different adjectives for the 4 FANTASTICs (noticing, smelling, touch and feeling) to describe your animal. Create a word bank and then choose your favourite words.
Noticing - what they look like: think about colour, shape and size
Smell - what do they smell like: not just stinky or nice
Touch - if you felt the animal what would they feel like
Feeling - what sort of animal are they? Kind, nasty, strict, caring...
Watch the video to learn how to write and solve subtraction problems through crossing out on a tens frame.
