The Butterfly Lion

January17

Our new class novel is the fantastic ‘The Butterly Lion’ written by Michael Morpurgo.

Year 4 have been working on interpreting a description from the novel. They had to pay close attention to the description, noticing the intricate details and also infer extraneous details. They then had to draw their interpretations of the scene through the medium of pencil, upload it into iMovies and create a short film showcasing their art, quotations from the text that they focussed on and choose music or sound effects that helped to complement the overall atmospheric mood of the scene.

These are some of their creations:

Mr Stink Character Description

October7

Deep inside the town, there lived a man, a stinky man called Mr stink. He had a dog called  the Duchess, he wasn’t a normal dog, he had his own stink. In the morning, I go to see Mr stink  and his dog the Duchess. I sometimes take him some  sausages  and egg, he gets out a china plate and cutlery. The duchess licked the plate clean for Mr stink. Mr stink’s beard  was hard  and it had  mouldy egg and sausage in it. Mr stink’s  jacket was ripped and very dirty. The duchess was muddy and never had a good wash. Mr stink’s bow tie was so tiny and very black and that was ripped. Mr stink had a dog called the duchess and mr stink gave him a sausage with cheese on top.

Mr Stink stank. Almost unbelievably, you could smell him from the other side of the Pacific Ocean. His beard was crusty and it had mouldy sausage and egg in it. He was a snappy dresser in his red, dirty, old bowtie and jacket. He had a dog called Duchess. He didn’t have a stench like Mr Stink. Mr stink lived on an old wooden bench with Duchess for company. Duchess was a black dog with a red collar.

Mr Stink STANK!!  It wasn’t his fault, he couldn’t have a shower like you and me.  Now, every time someone walked past, they nearly died.  Strangely, Mr Stink carried a dog, Duchess, who had black fur and she had a horrible stench, worse than Mr Stink. Mr Stink looks posh, sounds posh and has a dog, so I think he used to be posh, even though he had mouldy sausage and rotten egg stuck in his beard from ages ago.  Mr Stink ate from the rubbish and his dog ate wrappers that people let go of.  Mr Stink is actually a snappy dresser in his red bowtie and his disgusting brown jacket.  However, the faded colours and pockmarked material gave him away. Back at the rusty bench, Mr Stink was just sitting there with Duchess barking madly and rapidly.

Never in my life have I met a tramp as smelly as Mr Stink. He wore a tweed jacket and a bow tie. His beard had mouldy egg, cheese and sausage in it, and it was so tangled! It  had its own smell. He had a dog a called Duchess who had a smell, she was a minute black dog. Some people would try to talk to Mr.Stink but he stunk so bad people would go running off whilst dropping a couple of pounds at his feet.

Mr stink had a super bad stench! He was a tramp, he only had a shower once a year and he lived on a bench. He had a little dog called Duchess. It is the the smelliest dog ever. He had a beard with bits of mangled sausage and cheese in it. He was quite a snappy dresser with his bow tie and tweed jacket which had gone scruffy over time.

A mile away, you could smell Mr Stink. He was the stinkiest stinker who ever lived. Curiously, he never leaves the bench, it’s like he owns it. In spring, he killed all the flowers and lots of animals because of his smell. Wherever you go, you could smell him and your eyes water from it, even if you were from the other side of the world. Constantly, people would go by using their T-shirts as gas masks.

Slowly, Mr Stink sat down on his bench whilst people ran past dropping coins at his feet, hoping he would have a bath or shower but he didn’t. Mr Stink was a lonely man; he had no friends because he stank. It wasn’t his fault, he was a tramp after all and you could smell him from the other side of the Pacific Ocean! There was nothing as smelly as him accept from his beard; his beard was full of mouldy bread.

Daily, Mr Stink stank. Wherever he sat, there was a stench, a horrible stench. Mr Stink had a dog who goes by the name Duchess, he is a special dog because he has his own special smell. Festering bits of old sausage, egg and mouldy cheese were tangled in Mr Stink’s beard.

I saw a man over there called Mr Stink and he stank. Nervously, I started walking to him whilst other people ran past him holding their noses. He had a big, brown and dirty beard and a small dog called Duchess. He wore a pock-marked tweed jacket. He was quite a snappy dresser, don’t you think?
