In English this half term we are reading the book Oliver and the Seawigs and our English lessons are based on this book.  The children have been learning about different verbs, present perfect tense and creating their own character using powerful language.  One of the lessons they had to design their own Seawig character and then use powerful adjectives to descibe it. The children then had to read their work to each other and discuss how they could up-level their work to make it even more interesting for example, if they used the word big,  could they up-level this word to gigantic. The children have been using a Thesaurus tom help them find better words.
