The Green Ship

We have been looking at adventure stories this week and have had a great time creating some freeze frames. 

This week in English we have been looking at ‘The Green Ship’ by Quentin Blake. Here is a summary of the story by Trey and Markus
‘ The story is about two young children who scramble over their neighbours wall and discover a huge green ship. The ship is made from trees and bushes and the children explore the world through the captain telling them stories and they learn to be a fully trained crew.’

We have created word banks thinking carefully about the character’s feelings and the setting. We included similes, noun phrases, adjectives and powerful verbs. We also created freeze frames to show the characters and the setting.
