Mrs Maiden's Literacy Group:

Today, you will be writing the main events as part of your retell. 


The main events include:

  • Mr Fox coming up with a plan.
  • Leaving Mrs Fox and digging with the children to Boggis’ Chicken house 1 and taking 3 chickens.
  • Meeting badger.
  • Digging to Bunce’s Storehouse and taking bacon, geese, ducks and hams.
  • Digging to Bean’s Cider Cellar, meeting rat and taking 2 containers of cider. 


To make this exciting for the reader, you could:

  • Include exciting, descriptive vocabulary.
  • Include some speech between characters, punctuated correctly.
  • Use fronted adverbials at the start of sentences that show where, when and how. E.g. 

In the deep, damp hole, …

One gloomy evening, …

Sneakily, …

  • The characters’ thoughts and feelings (make them exciting, not ‘happy’ or ‘sad’)


Mrs Worrallo’s Literacy Group:

This week we are going to focus on the different characters in Fantastic Mr Fox and describe them!


Each day we are going to describe a different character. On Friday we are going to compare two of them!


Tuesday – Describe Badger.

Wednesday – Describe Mrs Fox.

Thursday – Describe Bunce.

Friday – Compare Badger and Mrs Fox.


Today, we are going to describe Bunce. Start by talking about him to an adult.

  • What does he look like?
  • What does he do?


Now open up the Blue Group Activity. Find the sheet about Bunce and write two sentences about him.


Yesterday in Maths, we learned about interpreting pictograms.


Today we are going to learn more about Statistics (pictograms, tally charts, bar charts and tables).
