2B English 19.05.20 Retell Fantastic Mr Fox

Hi Year 2,

Yesterday, you explored the story of Fantastic Mr Fox through use of role play. This should have helped you remember what happened in the story and given you lots of ideas for writing.

Today I would like you to retell the story in your own words. I am expecting QUALITY writing just like at school. (Writing only a few sentences is NOT good enough!) It was a very long story but make sure you include the main parts!

Use the pictures to help you…

Here is what we will be expecting to see in your writing…
These are the writing checklists we use at school. All Year 2 children will be familiar with these!

Take your time & show me how brilliant you are!

The farmers grow tired of Mr Fox stealing from them all the time, so the farmer’s try to capture Mr Fox and try to kill him. Mr Fox and Badger did a deep hole underground so that they can all hide from the farmers. Mr Fox, Badger, his children and his wife are all in the hole together trying to stay away from the nasty farmers and they have no food to eat. They become very very hungry. Mr Fox then makes a plan to steal food from the farmers by making a tunnel in the ground, all the way to the farmers’ houses.

Mr Fox had brought so much food that he invited all of the animals to have a feast, he then asks them to live with him Underground and says that he will give them food, so all the animals can stay healthy and safe away from the nasty farmers that try to kill them. Mr Fox can help them because of his amazing idea of the tunnel however, the farmers are still waiting outside for Mr Fox to show up but he never does.
