In our first English unit we have studied the story of the much loved ‘Lion King’ the children were really engrossed in the film and have loved learning more about the characters and looking deeper into the plot. Previous to this lesson we collected adventurous adjectives to describe different characters personality traits & appearance.

Setting descriptions it was great to see a range of different prepositions used to open our sentences, we also used our senses to help describe the setting
