In English this week, we read the story ‘Never tickle a tiger’ while learning all about exclamation marks. The children enjoyed exploring the different tone of voice used when reading something with an exclamation mark. They then created their own characters for their story and focused on writing short sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and exclamation marks. If you would like to continue this at home, the children could draw a picture from the Great Fire of London and write sentences from the perspective of a civilian.
