The Twits

This half term we have been learning how to write character and setting descriptions in English. We have used “The Twits” by Roald Dahl for inspiration!

We have enjoyed hearing all about their awful habits and nasty tricks and have giggled along and scrunched our faces with disgust as we listened to the tales. 

As we read, we “magpied” powerful adjectives and verbs that we liked so that we could use them In our writing too.

To help with our character descriptions, we worked as a team to create giant collages of Mr and Mrs Twit. Following this, we learned how to write expanded noun phrases using powerful adjectives and conjunctions. We had great fun describing the food in Mr Twit’s beard!

Take a look at the pictures to see our masterpieces…
