Year 6 reading their interactive picture books to EYFS

Last week, children in Year 6 worked in pairs to create picture books aimed at younger children. They did lots of research, looking at published and already popular books for inspiration. Their stories all contained a moral and were written as bed time stories.

The feedback from EYFS children was fantastic and they loved the characters and stories Year 6 had created.

Year 6 are now looking into writing sequels, watch this space...
