Amazing Writers

Year 1 have been using the story ‘Supertato’ to help them with their writing. The Evil Pea escaped last week and the children went on a journey to find him, which helped them understand verbs. They didn’t manage to find him, but when they came into school this morning, they discovered their friend Supertato had caught him over the weekend! The children were very excited and they all wrote some super sentences about what had happened.
