Nursery have been learning to retell the classic story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
They have been using a story map and actions so that they know the story really well. Amazingly, they also have some real life caterpillars too. The children are going to watch them grow.

Recently, Year 2 took part in the National Young Writers’ Award competition.
They worked with Explore Learning and had lots of fun workshops to generate ideas for their story writing.

Well done Year 2!
Next year, our reading diaries will have an illustration designed by one of our children.

It was a very difficult decision as all of the entries were fantastic but the winner is…
Ali S from Year 5.
Congratulations Ali, your picture is fantastic!
