 The Witches

Resource TES: One-off lesson plan but could be developed into a unit around the novel. Used initially with Year 3 but could be simplified/extended for Year 2 or 4. The children use Roald Dahl's book as inspiration to describe what they think are the recognisable features of a witch. Focuses on use of vocabulary and adjectives.
