Amazing work yesterday. You are really building up that stamina for writing.  When you have finished you will have your own booklet.  Just 4 more planets to plan today.  Name them

Amazing Writing

Thank you so much for everyone that has stuck with us through the writing. Especially in the last week.


As teachers writing can the trickiest to teach, and you (and your parents) have been amazing.  That confidence to write is formed in Key Stage 1 and by working with your child now you will have made a huge difference to their ability to write.  Well done everyone!
