In Literacy, the Curlews have been writing our own versions of The Dragon Machine. We have been changing parts of the story and the characters. In the book, George sees dragons wherever he goes, and they get into mischief. In our stories, the characters have been seeing fairies, dinosaurs, mermaids and all sorts of creatures!
We have now started to focus on writing instructions. We have been having fun following different sets of instructions, to make things like pirate hats and paper aeroplanes. We flew these on the playground, but had a bit of trouble as it was a windy day!
This week we had a visit from a firefighter from the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service. We learned about how to keep safe and what to do in an emergency. Some of the class even dressed up in firefighter uniforms!
