The Snowman by Raymond Briggs retelling activities
This set of activities is designed for young pupils with limited English, but the writing frames can also be used with pupils who have some expressive writing ability. After watching The Snowman, pupils can retell the story using vocabulary cards or drawing/writing frames. I also included a 'design a snowman&' activity, an invitation to a snowman party, and a set of &';noses' for playing &'pass the nose&';! The photo pack might be useful if you live in an area where it doesn’t snow. If you like my resources, please leave me a comment! For more, see
