This week in English, we watched a movie called The Bridge to Terabithia. It is a film based on a book written by Katherine Paterson. The film is really good. It’s about a boy and a girl who become best friends and have an imaginary kingdom in a forest. They call the kingdom Terabithia and they are the protectors of it.

Jess is given his sisters old runners just before school by his mother. She thought his old runners were really busted so she got rid of them. His sisters runners were pink and he coloured in the pink bits with a black marker to try and hide them. He was really embarrassed by them.

We learned how to describe pictures and used two different pictures from the DVD covers of Bridge to Terabithia. We all gave one word to describe the picture and then put another word either in front of or behind the word to make a phrase. Then we put our phrases together as a poem. In the end we had one big poem about bridge to Terabithia. It was very good because it was actually like the film.

In English this week, we watched the Bridge To Terabithia. In the film a girl called Leslie started school called Lark Creek Elementary. On her first day at school she took part in the boys running race at break time. She won the race. Jess (a boy at school) wasn’t happy that Leslie won the race. We had to complete worksheets about the characters of Jess and Leslie. I found out that Jess was a very private person that liked to keep things to himself. I found out that Leslie was a very out-going person.

On Tuesday we wrote a diary entry for either Jess or Leslie. I wrote Leslie’s diary. My diary entry was about Leslie starting school and meeting Jess. When i wrote this diary entry i imagined what it was like to be in Leslie’s shoes.

Yesterday we watched the film and found out that Leslie died. I was very suprised that Leslie died I did not predict that! When Jess found out he was very upset.

Today we watched the end of the film. We found out the Jess builds a bridge across the river to Terabithia. I think this is where the title of the film came from.
