The power of a good story ending!

Today we were reading ‘The Giant’s necklace’ by Michael Morpurgo as part of our literacy work.  The children loved the story and the way in which the author built up the tension and included a twist into the end of the story.  We filmed as the children realised the main character had died and was in fact a ghost!  There are some fantastic ‘shocked faces’ as you can see on the video below
