Our first movie

We have been reading Bad Jelly the Witch and working on character descriptions. We had to create, using kidpix, a character from the story, through only hearing the story (we didn't know what the characters looked like!) This was to see how well the author used descriptive language throughout. We also had to use adjectives to describe our character. Next we decided to put it into a movie format. Mrs Waterland, Tessa and Chelsea worked on it - it was new learning for everyone. This is our creation. We are pretty pleased with our first effort!
