In class we have already looked at summarising, and the children have enjoyed creating an artistic summary: an illustration to capture what happens in the text.

Can you draw an artistic summary to show what has happened in chapter two for Nya?

Can you draw an artistic summary to show what has happened in chapter two for Salva?

Think carefully about the shapes and colours you are going to use from the examples above.

Here are some ideas to get you started, if you need them:
