Writing Week!Written by Abbie Davies
We are having a very exciting first week back! On Monday we visited the school pond and used all our senses to explore the environment. We each wrote a senses poem about the pond.
For the remainder of the week we are creating factfiles for three different creatures that live in a pond. So far, we have learnt about pond fish and newts.
Look out for our amazing facts about frogs!
