As part of our their literacy unit, the Year 4 children are writing and illustrating their own Christmas storybooks for their Reception Class buddies, providing a 'real' outcome for the children.
Yesterday, the Year 4 children went on a fact-finding mission, writing their own questionnaires asking their buddies about their favourite type of books. With emergent writers in Reception Class, it was great for them to see writing with a real and exciting purpose!
The Year 4s then shared their own favourite Christmas book, providing an opportunity for our youngest children to see their buddy's wonderful reading skills!
We can't wait to see the finished Christmas books!
