Independent Writing - An Alternative Ending to The Enormous Turnip

Do you remember watching The Enormous Turnip video on Monday for Story Time?

Here it is again:

The Enormous Turnip (Retold by Irene Yates)

Watch and read the story of The Enormous Turnip on the powerpoint. Who would you ask to help you pull the turnip out of the ground?

Can you retell the story to your family? Play pretend and ask your family to be the other characters, or you could use these stick puppet templates to retell the story. You could even make your own.


Comprehension - The Enormous Turnip

Read the story together, support your child as necessary. 

Ask the children to talk about their answers. Encourage your child to answer some questions with one or two words. They can use the word bank, story and alphabet line to help them.
