Today in Writing time we read the story of a mole who loved to label everything! Ignoring the label on a magicians hat saying "Warning! Do not touch!" led to some hilarious consequences. In response to this book, our Year 1 writers took to the page, drawing a detailed picture and then labelling EVERYTHING! This was a great, non threatening way to come back to writing after a long break. Starting with just words instead of full sentences also reminds children how to stretch out a word to hear the individual sounds that make it up.
