In this lesson, we will create a bank of expanded noun phrases to describe the Cyclops from the text. We will add detail by choosing appropriate verbs and adverbs to add to our expanded noun phrases.
Next week, we will be using our work from today's lesson to write a character description of the Cyclops. This is because Wednesday this week was transition day.
Remember to use your best joined up handwriting.

Today, you are going to explore the idea of dreams! Miss Rogers and Year 4 have already designed their own dream jars and I thought you would enjoy this lesson too.
There are two meanings for the word 'dream'. A dream is something we have when we go to sleep at night, like the dreams blown through the windows in the story of the BFG, but a dream can also be a personal aspiration or goal: something that we really want to achieve.
I'd like you to think about your own personal dreams. You might aspire to perform in a play or learn how to ride a bike or you may have a long-term dream such as what you want to be when you're older or a change you want to make to the world and environment.
Once you've decided on your personal dreams, I would like you to write them on the label of the jar (the document is below). You can then draw and colour what you think your personal dream will look like in the jar.
If you cannot print the jar picture off, you could simply draw your jar of any shape or size onto some plain paper.
I'd love to see your dream jars so please send them to me at email@example.com
If you feel like getting a bit creative this Friday afternoon, you could make a BFG dream jar. All you will need is a jar of some kind, some different coloured paints, water, cotton wool and glitter (if you have it).
If you have these things (please don't feel you need to go out and get them if not), follow the instructions below to make your dream jar. You could even make your own label and attach this to your dream jar too!
