Year 3 have enjoyed reading this exciting book by Roald Dahl – The Minpins! It’s all about Little Billy who makes new friends that live in miniature houses inside hollow trees. Little Billy comes across a fearsome beast… The Gruncher! He then has to plan a way to defeat him, with the help of his Minpin friends.
The children have produced some wonderful writing based on Billy’s experience in the forbidden Forest of Sin. Next week we will be looking to recreate our own version of The Minpins.
What have you enjoyed the most about this story? Can you write some sentences below to describe Billy’s experience? You could apply all the skills that we have learnt in our English lessons: Power of three, fronted adverbials, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions.
