The charming, suave, sophisticated Mr Fox

Today in Guided Reading, using our short story Fantastic Mr Fox, Year 4 did some excellent character analysis! 

We started off with incredible discussion about how we can describe Mr Fox, and the nasty three farmers. The children used dictionaries and thesaurus’ to up level their vocabulary and came up with some wonderful descriptive ideas. 

After that, we moved onto looking at how the book specifically described the characters. Using our character templates we recorded what the text said about each character inside the template. The children used their retrieval skills in such a  focus way, quickly finding really detailed and specific description. 

After that we moved onto discuss what we thought about each character using the book as a basis for inference and with a little help of the crimson clue hunter.

The children produced some great work.

Well done Year 4, keep up the amazing work in Guided Reading. Keep being you
