We are loving our new English topic based on Bethan Woollvin's Rapunzel! 


Children are exploring exciting new vocabulary, enjoying new stories and having a go at writing their own story!

Children have been reading Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne.

Children have planned and written their own story called "Voices in the Classroom".
