Mrs Credland came to tell us all about her Gotland sheep and how she uses their wool to make different things.

Shared Writing Week
This week we have enjoyed Shared Writing Week across school. In every class we have explored the book by Kobi Yamada called ‘WHAT DO YOU DO WITH AN IDEA?’. The writing that we completed this week was shared across the whole school!
The book follows a young boy who suddenly gets an idea! It shows us his journey of feelings as he hides, grows and shares his idea.
Class Stream wrote Acrostic poems about ideas.
Class River wrote instructions about looking after a precious idea.
Class Estuary wrote newspaper reports about a world changing idea.
Class Ocean wrote 2 contrasting diary entries from the perspective of the little boy.
On Friday we gathered in house groups and shared our excellent writing. Teachers and children were wowed by neat handwriting, original ideas, descriptions, genre features, emotions and clear, loud reading. It was a very inspiring sharing time!
It was fantastic to see so many confident and proud writers.
We are already looking forward to the next Shared Writing Week!
Please come and see some samples of our work displayed in the school hall.
