Trickster Folktales

In Room 9 this week, we have begun reading folktales from other countries.
Our first folktale was 'Carlos and Diego', a story about a trickster guinea pig from Peru.

We found out that there are many folktales from around the world with trickster characters.
We decided to create our own trickster characters based on a country of our choice.
We first had to research that country to find out the native animals that live there, what their habitats would be and what common boys and girls names they have there.
We used what we had found out to write our character descriptions.
Have a read of some of them below.
We focused on using specific adjectives to describe our character and combining our ideas from our plans into compound or complex sentences.
