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.

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