The children have been working hard on their sentence stacking for our story the Happy Prince and next week we'll be starting to plan and write their own independent stories. This week amongst other things we've looked at personification, the power of three and repetition for effect, apostrophes for possession, dialogue, noun phrases and using our senses to build our descriptions.
