Week beginning 16th March 2015
This week the children have been reading "The Secret Garden" The children have planned what they might see in their own secret garden using story mapping. Today the children have written a descriptive piece of writing describing what they saw. I am really pleased with the great use of adjectives and similes. Well done Celandine!
