Terrific Tie Dye

       We had a truly amazing trip to Ban Chang Tie Dye Cooperative. It was fantastic to twist and stretch the fabric to create our own designs, and really exciting to unwrap the T-shirts: they were fantastically colourful!

The smallest fish can tell the tallest tales...

"Sorry I'm late, Miss. I set off really early but on the way to school I was captured by a squid. I wriggled and i struggled till a turtle came and rescued me." 

" Oh,no, he didn't." "OH,YES,HE DID." 

"Tiddler", another brilliant book of Julia Donaldson features a captivating story about a fish which was always late to school. 

Tiddler, the fish, would make imaginative excuses for his lateness.Until one day when he goes on a real adventure!

After reading the story and identifying some features of the text we embarked on a culinary adventure and made our own...Tiddlers!
