This week in English, and for the following couple of weeks we will be working on 'The Game'. This is a writing unit from the amazing Pie Corbett.
The story we are going to look at is The Game. In 1981 Chris Van Allsberg wrote a book called Jumanji. In the story, a brother and sister discover a game that turns fiction into real life. Whatever square you land on in the game, brings a new challenge to overcome. Worst still, the challenge becomes a reality for everyone around.You can look at this on the internet: https://cutt.ly/JtxrUyf
This is a link to the original movie trailer for Jumanji in 1995
and you can see the consequences of playing the game!
First check with an adult that it’s ok to do this.
