Character Description of the giant from

Jack and the Beanstalk

 

This week, Jayden has been chosen as our Star Writer because he wrote some really descriptive sentences about the giant, including the simile ‘he is as strong as a boxer.’  Jayden also used conjunctions in his writing to join his ideas, such as ‘The giant is angry because Jack took his gold.’

Well done, Jayden and keep up the hard work!
