Wheat class have been creating story maps of the story Ivy and the Lonely Raincloud- Dragonflies used images from the story to support them.

Maize class have been reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. The children then had the chance to taste and feel a variety of different fruits to support them with coming up with lots of interesting and exciting describing words. The children then used these describing words in their own writing of an innovated version of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
