We talked about many of his books, but the BFG in particular. There were lots of activities: There were ‘warm ups’, we could ‘chose the answer’, ‘listened to excerpts’ and we worked in small groups and had to ‘show what we thought’.
There were questions like, what shape are Snozzcumbers??? Well, we know they’re long and lumpy, and a bit like this..
Then we thought about how Sophie travelled with the BFG: in his ear, of course!
There’s a description in the book where somebody (in a dream the BFG has caught) wants to write a book SO good people won’t be able to stop reading it – no matter what they’re doing. Guess what we are all doing…
