English – Thursday 18th June 2020

Today we will be meeting one of the worst characters Roald Dahl has ever invented! Any guesses who it could be? That’s right Miss Trunchbull!!! Using the audiobook below watch or read the next chapter from 1 hour, 9 minutes and 51 seconds to 1 hour, 18 minutes and 36 seconds.

Based on everything we have learned about Miss Trunchbull so far, today’s task is to create a set of class rules that you be expected to follow In Miss Trunchbull’s classroom. I have given you an example set of class rules that you would find in a normal kind and caring classroom. However, I’m not quite sure they would be suitable for Miss Truchbull. You could then create your own poster with the new rules. Please let us know all of these new rules, we might be able to get some fresh ideas for when we are back at school!
