Task 1: 

 

After reading the story of the Gingerbread Man, have a go at acting out the story. You could do this with your family or by yourself. We would love to see you retelling the story. So why not email it to us at year1@rosaryrc.bham.sch.uk

 

There are some puppets and masks that might come in handy for this activity attached below. 

Task 2:

 

Create a missing poster for the Gingerbread Man. Include a detailed description about what he looks like. Have a go at using the expanded noun phrase. For example,

 

Missing Gingerbread Man. He is a short, ginger biscuit. His white, dazzling eyes are placed perfectly on his head.

 

Have a go at adding a similie. For example, 

 

The Gingerbread Man can run as fast a lightening. He is a smells like a beautiful bakery in the warm, bright sun.

Task 4: 

 

Using the story of the Gingerbread Man, retell the story in your own words. Think about what happens in the beginning, what happens in the middle and then the end. Use the writing checklist to reread your work and make sure it makes sense. A good way to tell if you have written a good story is if you can read it to your family and if your family can read it too. 

 

We are looking for exciting adjectives, verbs and similies. Make this story your own. Don't forget to send it to us at year1@rosaryrc.bham.sch.uk
