Where the wild things are!

I have continued to be amazed by the writers in Room 16, they are amazing! We 'magpied' the phrase 'perishing with hunger' from 'The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me' by Roald Dahl and so many of the children have added this to their writing. I used a technique called 'Talk for Writing' by Pie Corbett to teach the story to the children over the week adding in interesting vocabulary and ellipsis. Here are a few examples:

'Once upon a time there lived a boy called Max. He disobeyed him mum and she sent him to his room. He was hungry when his mum sent him to bed! He built a tent in his room. The trees started to surround him and up on the ceiling the green vines were swinging. Then a boat came by so he jumped onto it to where the wild things are. The wild things gnashed their teeth and roared their terrible roars! They made him king and danced like a herd of elephants. Then they jumped on the branch. Poor Max he wished he was at home so he jumped onto his boat. He nearly sailed a year. Then he came back and his supper was waiting for him and guess what...it was still hot.'

'One starry night Max built a tent. Max went to bed perishing with hunger. His room started to grow with long hanging trees. Suddenly a boat appeared out of nowhere. He jumped on it. He sailed from night and day. Finally he arrived there but the monsters roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth. He got frustrated "let the wild rumpus begin" they stomped like a herd of elephants. It was loud. Now he said "now stop".
