We have started our new text called The Gardener.
We discovered a bag of items in the classroom on Tuesday. There was a hairbrush, some seeds, a sketch pad, some colouring pencils, a sun hat, some envelopes and a shiny, silver purse. The children wrote some excellent sentences describing these objects.
We then discovered some letters from Lydia Grace. She was going to stay with her Uncle in the city.
We recreated the train journey in the classroom.
We then wrote in the first person as Lydia, describing what we could see on the train and how we were feeling.
