Sinbad’s spectacular voyages

This morning in English, we continued exploring stories from the Arabian Nights and read the Voyages of Sinbad. In groups, we focused on one of his voyages, creating a succinct summary of events which we will use this week for our work on playscripts!

Class 9 – what happened in your group’s voyage? What did you like about the comic style story?

    I thought the comic style worked well with the story.

    In our voyage (number 6) he got washed up on an island and made a raft to sail down a river to an island with a friendly rich king who sen him home with gifts for his king – the caliph of Basra – and the caliph was very pleased.

    I loved reading the sinbad voyages. My favourit voyage was number 1 because I’ve seen the movie of all the voyages and the origanle story and the first movie were so thriling.

    i also loved finding formal and informal parts of text in the story.

  12. beatrice

    The person illustrating makes the story funny.

    I really enjoyed reading the seven voyages of Sinbad. I thought our group play was really fun. Thanks Miss Platts for teaching us fun story’s and letting us make a play about the voyages of Sinbad. I hope we can read more story’s and turn them into our own plays again. (:
