Year 4 face their fears

Year 4 have been learning how to write recounts in their English lessons.

Having been inspired by Emily Gravett’s unusual book: ‘Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears’, the pupils recounted their own fears from when they were little and presented them in the style of a scrapbook page.

They all enjoyed telling each other their fears and presenting their ideas in a different and fun format.
