We read ‘The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me’ by Roald Dahl. We looked at some of the themes and focussed on the theme of dreams. In the book the characters all have their dreams come true, with the character of Billy getting his dream of opening a sweet shop full of fantastical sweets! We were so inspired that decided to design our own amazing sweets! This process by looking at real life context and studying a variety of actual sweets to get some ideas about look, texture, smell, sound and (best of all) taste! We decided to use some our the descriptive language that we’ve been learning about when we’ve been looking at and writing descriptive texts this block to help us describe our sweets. Inspired by this we then created our own marvellous sweety designs, thinking about amazing names and special features they might have. Below are a sample of some of the ideas the class came up with…yum!
