Read the chapter of The Twits about the glass eye again.  Can you think of a trick that one of the characters could play on the other?  Write the beginning of your 'chapter'.  Set the scene and introduce the trick without going into the detail of it. 

 

Here is an example:

 

To pay Mrs Twit back for the glass eye trick, Mr Twit decided that he would trick her with some of her favourite chocolates.  Instead of eating her beloved salted caramel truffles, he would swap them for some stinky, gross brussel sprouts (secretly covered in chocolate of course).  That morning, while Mrs Twit was snoring in front of the TV, Mr Twit quietly got to work in the kitchen.

We're going to carry on with our writing from yesterday.  You should have introduced the "trick" to be played on Mr Twit or Mrs Twit by the other one.  The next paragraph should describe how the trick was set up and carried out.  Here's an example of how you could do it.  Can you spot any adverbs or adverbial phrases?  Try and include at least two in your writing!

That morning, while Mrs Twit was snoring in front of the TV, Mr Twit quietly got to work in the kitchen. He had bought the most stinky brussel sprouts the corner shop had to offer.  They only cost pennies because they were almost ready to be thrown out.  To make them look like Mrs Twit’s beloved salted caramel truffles, Mr Twit carefully melted some lovely milk chocolate on the hob.  Dipping each brussel sprout in the chocolate, one by one, he placed them on a chipped white plate from the cupboard.  One hour cooling in the fridge and they would be ready for Mrs Twit’s afternoon snack.
