Your task today is to pick two of the following activities to complete:
a) Write your own setting description to create suspense. For example, this could be a fantasy setting like a school of witchcraft and wizardry, or an abandoned house in a spooky setting or maybe a deserted fairground. The choice is yours but remember to use all of the techniques we learnt about when writing our suspense narrative for Victorian London.
b) Author Study: Write an author study of Lewis Carroll. If beautifully presented and informative, we will display it in the Year 6 library.
c) Write a book comparison: Compare the story of 'Alice in Wonderland' to a similar book that you have read, e.g. 'The Wizard of Oz'. How are they the same? How are they different? What techniques have the authors used? When were the stories written?
d) Write a book review: After reading the story of 'Alice in Wonderland', please write a book review. Remember to include a summary of the plot (without giving the ending away!), the setting and characters, who do you think would enjoy reading this book and what star rating would you give it?
Use your creative skills, to make a Mad Hatter's Hat or a hat of your own design that you would wear to Alice's teaparty. We look forward to seeing your creative designs on the afternoon's Zoom meeting!
Alternatively, you might prefer to colour and decorate the images below.
