2R 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!

    • Hello Mr Caleb. Wow Caleb! Such detail. I can see that you listened carefully and read the story. Well done! Now, I would like you to think carefully about your spelling and punctuation. Let’s have a look at the first part.

      Once upon a time in a deep dark valy there was 3 farmers whan was very mean one was very mean one was very horrible and one was really disgusting all of the Farmers were Rich they owned Farms . one was haggis he had apples one had turkeys and one had doughnuts and one had chicken .every now and then Fantastic Mr Fox wood would come down to one of the Farms and get either sider the chicken Tircey .

      Once upon a time in a deep, dark valley there were three farmers. One farmer was very mean, one was very horrible and one was very disgusting. All of the farmers were rich because they owned huge farms. The first farmer was called Boggis and on his farm he grew apples in the orchards.

      Can you write about the other two farms please. Use two sentences that have capital letters and full stops. Read them back before you post them. You are a star Caleb and I know you can do this!

  2. Once upon a time there were 3 farmers called Boggis, Bunce and Bean.
    One day Bean said that he had enough of Mr fox taking their food so Bean decided that he would kill Mr fox ☠️.
    Mr fox asked Mrs fox what should it be today and Mrs fox said we will have 2 fat ducks for me and you and 1 fat duck for the children.
    The 3 farmers said what should we do to kill Mr fox and Bean said we will shoot the fox when he comes out.
    When Mr fox came out the farmers shot.
    Bean said did we get him, maybe we didn’t get the fox but we got the tail we shot too late.
    Mrs fox was making Mr fox stump better.
    After a while Mr fox and Mrs fox heard a digging noise then Mr fox said to dig and they all started digging below them.
    Bunce and Bean got 2 digging machines.
    Now Bunce and Bean made a huge crater in the hill.
    Mr fox was digging still!
    When Mr fox opened a wooden lid he saw lots of hens and jumped up in excitement.
    When Mrs fox saw all those hens she immediately got to cooking.
    While Mr fox was digging he saw Badger.
    When Mr fox went up the ladder he grabbed some goose.
    Mr fox said we have enough food we just need to get one more thing.
    On the way Mr fox saw rat and Mr fox said that he will eat rat.
    When they took out the bricks they saw a lot of jars.
    The smallest fox grabbed some jars and brought it to Mrs fox.
    When a lady came in the room where the jars were and she grabbed two jars.
    Finally the animals in the tunnel had a huge feast.
    The farmers were still waiting for Mr fox to come out of the tunnel.

  3. Once upon a time there were three farmers. Fantastic Mr Fox used to go to their farms to steal juicy meaty animals for dinner. The three farmers were Boggis, Bunce and Bean they were all very ugly. Bunce was tall and skinny. Bean was short and had a pot belly. And Boggis was fat and ugly. The three farmers were very angry with Mr Fox. They wanted to kill him so they planned to go out in the woods with their guns. Mr Fox got shot on his tail when he came out his hole. The farmers spotted his pointy, rounded shiny nose.
    Mr Fox decided to go back to steal a turkey for Mrs Fox and the little foxes. He dug underneath till he got to the store rooms and warehouse of the farmers. Mr Fox invited badgers and his family and the rabbits for a feast. Badger and the little foxes helped Mr Fox take the turkey and chickens back to Mr Fox. They all ate together and enjoyed their feast.

    • What a fantastic story Yahya. Well done. Have a read of it again and see if you can spot a few little mistakes For example, badgers should be Badger. I am so impressed with the adjectives you are using.

      Read this sentence again. Could you improve it?

      Mr Fox got shot on his tail when he came out his hole.
      As Mr Fox came out of his hole, his big, bushytail got shot off.

  4. The story was about 3 farmers and 6 foxes the foxes were very happy in there very tiny cave. They were so hungry they could not wait for 1 second but then Fantastic Mr Fox’s wife said were so hungry can you get us some food please of course my dear he went of to scavenge some food he had saw a house he sniffed the ground. He had found delicious,scrumptious goose when he ran back the farmers herd him running and started shooting him. They wanted the full body of him but they only got the tail. When they got his tail they had stuffed it with cotten wool.

    • Great content. Well done. Think about your sentences Hanfaa.

      Look at the text below please and try and punctuate it correctly. I can spot a question.

      They were so hungry they could not wait for 1 second but then Fantastic Mr Fox’s wife said were so hungry can you get us some food please of course my dear he went of to scavenge some food he had saw a house he sniffed the ground.

      They were so hungry that they could not wait for another second. Mr Fox’s wife said we are so hungry. Can you get us some food please?

  5. My favourite part was when Mr Fox broke his tail.

    I woman went into a room with badger food but Mr Fox and the badger was still in the room with baby fox licking a jar of badger food.

    The farmers got some diggers to dig up the hole to eat the foxes but they didn’t. The farmers ate something else.
    But the hole animals were Lucky.
    So they saved a lot of food and every time they run and out of food they went to the place where was all the food they needed .

  6. The story was about a Fox who was trying to look after his family.he was stealing food from 3 farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean. They were very angry with him they found his hole and waited for him. Mr Fox was coming out of the hole the farmers shot his tail so Mr Fox jumped back down the hole. The farmers got angry because they only got his tail. They decided to get the digging machines and started to dig the hill. The foxes thought they can dig faster then the machines so they started to dig down when they met badger, and they decided to dig their way into the storehouse to get some food. They used trolleys to take and have a feast but the farmers were to tired dig anymore.

    • Good try lbraheem. I am so pleased with your effort, however, you need to look back through your sentences- use your checklist to help you.
