This term the Year 4 children have been working really hard on writing mythical stories set around the times of the Anglo-Saxons. All children wrote their own stories and some went on to produce their own books and graphic novels. On Thursday afternoon, many of the children then went to visit the Year 6 classes to share their stories and get some feedback.
"This is a really great story and I can see lots of year 6 features," said one student.

The children returned to Year 4 feeling extremely proud of their work and the perseverance they have shown in completing such a huge task is a credit to the children. Well done Year 4!Read more link text
