Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

A day as the snail

Year 1 have been very busy publishing their diaries as the snail about their adventure with the whale.  We had to pretend we were the snail and had visited the icebergs, jungle, under the sea and helped to save the whale in the bay.

We used plenty of exciting adjectives to describe the places and objects such as the fire engines and the rock that the snail lives on.  We also used a variety of sentence openers including first, next, then, after that and finally to show the order of events.

Here are some of our front covers for the snail's diary.
