In literacy this week we have been reading the story of'The Twits' by Roald Dahl. We really enjoyed reading all about the different tricks Mr and Mrs Twit played on each other. In pairs we role played a character from the story and thought of our own tricks to play on each other. (31.1.19)

In Literacy we have been reading the story 'The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark'. We have researched lots of facts about owls and we had the opportunity to visit Kirkleatham Owl and Bird Sanctuary. We saw lots of different species of owls and birds and we had the chance to feed them. We were really brave and some of us faced our fears by handling an owl, rat, snake and a bearded dragon.
