WALT: Plan and describe the house within our setting description

Today, we are going read the next chapter of A Tale Dark and Grimm, titled Hansel and Gretel. Within this chapter, we will come across the sweetie house where an old lady lives. We will then look at an example of one and some descriptive language which can be used to describe it. Your chilli challenge for today will be to design your own sweetie house and to then add some descriptive sentences based on it. The hotter the challenge, the more descriptive you’ll have to be.
