Holly Class - Don't Spill the Milk!

In our English lessons this week we have been reading a story called 'Don't Spill the Milk'. It is about a little girl called Penda who lives in Nigeria in Africa and she carries some milk to her Daddy who is working in the grasslands. We had lots of fun retelling the story this week using pictures, adding chalk drawings and models outside as well as story maps. The children have used lots of language from the book as they worked together to retell the story.

Towards the end of the week we used some of the things that happened in the story to write some super sentences, Year 1 worked hard to up-level their sentences and make them really interesting for the reader. On Friday we were really lucky and had a visitor from Cotteswold Dairy who taught us all about the work they do.
