Tuesday 2nd June 2020 – Writing planning task.

Hello Year 4,

Please watch the clip below. It shows an inventor creating two characters for Grimms fairytale. You can watch the video clip as many times as you like.


Now you have watched the clip, we would like to invent your own machine to create your own two fairytale characters.

  • Draw your invention
  • label the names of the different parts of the machine/ invention
  • numbering in the order in which the machine/invention works and explaining how each part of the machine works to create the characters. USE YOUR IMAGINATION! (aim for atleast 8 different parts to explain how your machine works)
  • draw and write which two fairytale characters are created.

When labelling the different parts to explain how it works. Think about the language that you would use related to an invention e.g. function, produce, creates, process. We do not want to see, put, get, it – this doesn’t tell us anything.

Enjoy being inventors and creating your fairytale character machine.

Mrs Denny, Mrs Baldry and Miss Bishop

    you will need 3d box so you could deposit your character in it.
    it would also require some gas so your able to produces the box to turn on.
    now you will need a strong, long wire to feel like a national link that means there is two boxes and say they are different nations that what I mean.
    next up you will need a big enough door so the fairy characters can come out and then next come in.
    you will need a potion maybe two more potions you will need one potion because so you can put it in the gas/steam so electrical box works and also so the other box works.
    finally you will require two fairy tale characters my one is a handsome prince but the catch is he turns into a pig every night and a little lost princess but the king and queen threw her daughter out of there castle.

    You will need a 3D box to make a character. You might need gas to make the characters and to also to turn it on. You might need different potions maybe like three to make the characters. If you put the potion in the electrical box it will make a character.Then you will make the characters. My character will be a brave woman who got kicked out from her house. The other character will be a handsome prince that likes to play with animals and ride his horse.
