Our final week of 'Rapunzel'. As part of this, I would like you to look at the book (pictures below) and discuss the answers (writing them down) with your adult. 





Retrieval: Look carefully at these pages. What can you see?

Inference: What might Rapunzel be thinking and feeling when she sees the witch?

Explain: Why does Bethan Woollvin use an ellipsis on page 16? How should this be read? What might come next?




Retrieval: Rapunzel says that the leaf must have blown in through the window. True or false?

Explain: Are there any words or phrases that have been repeated on these pages? Why might this be?

Vocabulary: Why is ‘TERRIBLE’ written in capital letters? How should this be read?
