Newmarket is great

Newmarket is great because there are lots of people you can play with. They are friendly people so you can talk to them. You can have lots of friends.

Newmarket is bad because it is a small town. People throw litter on the ground. It is bad because people have to travel to work and this could take a long time.

Newmarket is great but I wish it was bigger.

The life cycle of a Butterfly

The Life Cycle of a Butterfly

First I got a piece of paper with pictures. There was a picture of a leaf, a picture of egg and leaf, a picture of a butterfly and picture of cocoon. Then I coloured in the pictures. I got a second sheet with four boxes. In each box I wrote down a different part of the life cycle. In the first box I wrote a leaf, in the second box I wrote an egg, in the third box I wrote a cocoon and the last box I wrote a butterfly. Next I cut out the pictures with a scissors. In the first box I stuck on the picture of the leaf. In second box I stuck a picture of an egg, on the third picture I stuck on a picture of a cocoon and the last box I stuck on a picture of a butterfly. I now know how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. The caterpillar goes out the egg on the leaf, it then goes into a cocoon and then it turns into a butterfly.

The Gruffalo



My Favourite Book

My favourite book is the Gruffalo.

The Gruffalo is my favourite character in the book.

It has orange eyes, purple prickles all over his back and he has a black tongue.

The Gruffalo has turned outtoes, he has a poisonous wart at the end of his nose and wobbly knees.

He also has terrible tusks and terrible jaws and terrible claws!

The story is about a mouse meeting a Gruffalo.

The mouse was scared of the Gruffalo.

The snake, the owl and the fox were also scared of the Gruffalo.

The mouse wanted the Gruffalo to think that he was the scariest animal in the woods.

The mouse scared the Gruffalo by telling him his favourite food was Gruffalo C;

The Hungry Caterpillar


The Hungry Caterpillar

The Hungry Caterpillar was my favourite story this year. It was about a caterpillar who ate all day and all night because he was always hungry. He ate an apple on Monday, on Tuesday he ate two pears, on Wednesday he ate three plums and on Thursday he ate four strawberries. On Friday he ate five oranges, on Saturday he ate chocolate cake, ice cream cheese salami and lots more but he was still hungry. Then on Sunday he ate through one nice green leaf and he then felt much better. The caterpillar was getting much bigger and he built a small house called a cocoon. He stayed in the cocoon for two weeks until he nibbled a hole and pushed through it. He had turned into a beautiful butterfly.

My favourite part of this story is when the caterpillar goes into the cocoon.
