During our English lesson on Thursday we were visited by Sam and his friend – characters from The Flood Story that we are learning. We were really excited to meet them because we were able to ask them questions about what happened in the story. We asked them how the flood started, what damaged it caused and how they helped the mayor to stop the flood. Sam and his friend also explained to us how they felt as they were woken in the middle of the night by a loud horn and as they looked out of their window they could see a waterfall of rain rushing through the streets and people running in all directions looking very confused. We then acted out the story and pretended to be Sam and his friend to think about how it might have felt to be in the flood. This will help us with or writing of expanded noun phrases.
