4 Red- Exploring stories with dilemmas

This week 4 Red have begun exploring stories with dilemmas. We have discussed dilemmas characters face in stories that we know and what a dilemma is.

We have begun looking at a new story called ‘The great Kapok tree’. This story is about a logger (someone who cuts down trees) who is spoken to by multiple animals in the rainforest and is persuaded to not cut down the tree.

We have been exploring the text by using VR headset to view a rainforest. We then created a story map which highlighted the key events of the story. We then answered questions based on the story using our inference and retrieval skills.

Why do the animals depend on the tree?

What is a dilemma?

Can you remember any of the animals that spoke to the logger while he was sleeping?
