Visiting the Construction Site

We Like Things at School by Room 6

Room 6 has rewritten the book "We Like Things on Earth" as "We Like Things at School"

Our learning this week was about getting clues from the illustrations to help us read and giving clues in our own pictures to help others know what our story is about.

Enjoy our rewrite and our illustrations :)
