Sheerness West Federation

Term 3 2019

This term our topic is called “Marvellous Medicines”. We have been reading “George’s Marvellous Medicine” by Roald Dahl. The first writing task has been to describe Granny from the story. Here are some examples of the children’s writing. 


“Granny sounded like a talking bird and she was a horrible Gran. Grandma had to have 4 spoonfuls of medicine a day. George tipped in everything he could find into the pan.”



“Grandma was horrible to George. She never used her manners. She was very unkind to George. She had wrinkly skin. She was bossy to George.”



“Granny was mean to George like she was the boss of the house. Granny even told George what to do. She was a witch.”



“Grandma was mean to George because she was a witch. George decided to make another medicine, a magic medicine to make Grandma better.”



“Grandma is horrific and witchy. She has to take her medicine four times a day. Granny was very croaky so she sounded like a crow. She never stood up and she was never kind to George. She told him to eat cabbage.”
