Enchanted Apples and Magic Stories

This week, Class 3 started a new English unit on portal stories. Our hook lesson involved imaging that the basket of apples Mrs Williams brought in contained one enchanted apple. In the story-telling area, we each ate an apple and imagined what magic power it might have. Some of us thought the magic apple might make us a champion footballer or give us a secret voice, only audible to animals. We had great ideas.


We also thought of some lovely adjectives to describe our apples as we ate them such as; crunch, juicy, delicious, tasty to name but a few. Mrs Williams then read us our model text; a story about a little girl Poppy who finds an ancient, wooden door which takes her to a world of fantastic feasts and tiny people. Our work in the coming weeks will be inspired by this story when we will write our own portal tales.
