Ask your child to recall what happens in the film ‘Bubbles’ and encourage them to retell the story using full sentences.

Discuss things the girl can see. Ask children to describe them by including colours and other adjectives e.g. beautiful moon, twinkly stars etc. Add in things they could see such as an alien in a rocket ship or a shooting start.

Now create sentences about what the girl saw in space or under the sea. Try linking some of your sentences together using the coordinating conjunction ‘and’ or extending your sentences using the subordinating conjunctions ‘because’, ‘that’, ‘when’ or ‘if’.
