We received a letter from the fairy tale police asking us for our help to find a little girl called Goldilocks. We read her story and learnt about the wrong choices that she had made. The bears were extremely upset and wanted our help to find her so she could apologise. We eventually found Goldilocks but she needed our help to write a letter to send to the three bears so we agreed. Here are a few examples of our lovely work. Goldilocks was very grateful and promised not do it again.
We wrote setting descriptions and used lots of lovely vocabulary.

We have been enjoying the Aboriginal Dreamtime story of The Rainbow Snake. We listened carefully to the story and worked together to sequence the key events. We participated in lots of drama activities to help our understanding of the characters' thoughts, feelings and motives and to predict what might happen next.
