11am - 12pm: Literacy: Roald Dahl was famous for creating wickedly imaginative villains. Read, watch and enjoy two of his most famous below: Miss Trunchbull - Matilda Miss Trunchbull is first introduced in two separate places in the book: Page 63-64, paragraph opening ‘Miss Trunchbull …’ to the end of same paragraph ‘…first day in Miss Honey’s Class’ AND Page 78-79, paragraph opening ‘She was above all a most formidable …’ to the end of same paragraph ‘… nice school for children.’ Read both extracts here – jotting down any words and phrases Roald Dahl uses which you think are particularly good/effective. Now watch this scene from the 1996 film Matilda (rating PG) and jot down any additional words or phrases to describe Miss Trunchbull: YouTube: Matilda (1996) Pigtail Hammer Throw Scene. Now read the description of the Grand High Witch from the middle of page 25, chapter opening Frizzled like a Fritter to end of page 26 ‘…It was unnatural.’ Now watch this scene from the 1990 film, The Witches. Jot down any words or phrases to describe The Grand High Witch. Based on the words and phrases you have collected for both characters, create a list poem (a poem which is written as a list of items) entitled ‘Villains.’ An example opening of a list poem based on these two texts is: 

Villains Pickled in vinegar, Foul, putrid, decayed, Fierce tyrannical monster. Arrogant eyes, Cruel mouth, Bloodthirsty.
