Welcome back to Term 4. This term we will be reading another popular children’s novel called ‘James and the Giant Peach’ by Roald Dahl.
As we read the first couple of chapters you may begin to notice how the characters and events are similar or can be connected to other stories that you are familiar with. There could be a connection with characters and events in stories that you have read before or in movies that you have seen. For example, the two aunties can be compared to the two ugly step-sisters in ‘Cinderella’ because they think that they are beautiful. Another reason is because both Cinderella and James are made to do lots of work around the house. Think of a connection to another story that you can make. Share your thoughts and explain how the stories are similar.
