Today the children will watch the clip that shows Carls house lift off on the start to his new adventure. In their writing today children should write about the build up to the event of the house reaching the air, including characters thoughts and feelings to create an exciting atmosphere. Explain to your child that a range of sentence types can help create this atmosphere. Short sentences for example can be used for exclamations and compound and complex can give more detail to the reader in order to help give them a more accurate picture in their heads.
