Writing Week!

Written by

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.

Last week we were lucky enough to watch a performance by Unique Voice.  We met some 'friendship' trains called Fast Fran, Bright Bria and Strong Stanley.  After the performance we thought of kind things we could say to our friends.
