Grasshopper Class worked really hard on writing their own short stories based on the text ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell. The children learnt how to redraft and edit to improve their stories then they were able to publish them using the computers. See below pictures of the children sharing their stories with the younger children of Fletching. It is important to write for a purpose and this is what the children chose to do. Last Friday, Grasshopper class went on a trip to Wakehurst Place where they explored the biology of plants and the environment..
