Once you have listened to or read the story again, you are going to be designing your own tasty sandwich.
In the book, Mrs Grinling puts lots of delicious ingredients to make different tasty sandwiches for Mr Grinling. Today, you are going to think of your own sandwich and you can use any ingredients you want.
First, you will draw a picture of your sandwich and your fillings.
Next, you will write some sentences to describe your ingredients.
When you are describing your ingredients, remember to use adjectives as they make our writing more exciting. (Look at the word mat below to help)
An adjective is a describing word, you can watch this video to remind yourself:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IT-G4c2-CHU
Example: I put a juicy, red tomato in my sandwich.
The cucumber is wet and crunchy.
