The snail and the whale

We really enjoyed reading and discussing the book "The snail and the whale" by Julia Donaldson in our literacy lessons. We used her creativity and powerful language, as well as beautiful illustrations by Axel Scheffler, to create some descriptive writing about different settings including the forest, under the sea, mountains and desert islands. We used lots of descriptive language such as similes, adjectives and powerful vocabulary.
