World Book Day 2017 - The BFG, Roald Dahl
For World Book Day we came dressed in our pyjamas. We had a whole school assembly, with Mr Dryburgh telling us about his dream. Following the assembly we quietly moved around school, collecting dreams and putting them into our dream jars. This led to some incredible writing opportunities back in class.
The Tiger Child
We used actions to re-tell the tiger child story. Then we re-wrote the story changing the characters and the ending!
