In our English lessons, we are learning to write a fairy tale. We have been exploring the different features of this genre and have been looking closely at good and evil characters. Eventually, we will be writing our own version of Rapunzel.

We are enjoying our Reading with RIC sessions, where we are looking at Anthony Browne's 'The Tunnel.' We have been looking closely at the text to answer questions and make predictions. We have also been taking part in lots of drama activities and have done a great job in pretending to be the brother and sister in the story. This has supported us to create some brilliant independent writing pieces.
