The children in Year 4 are enjoying being back in school. Last week we really enjoyed sharing the brilliant picture book ‘Mixed’ by Arree Chung. This week we have focussed on another brilliant picture book: ‘The Promise’ by Nicola Davies.

The story tells the tale of a young, homeless girl with no hope in life. She has resorted to stealing to stay alive. After stealing a bag from an old lady, our main character finds that the bag is full of acorns. Our main character takes to planting these acorns and goes on a life changing journey. We enjoyed exploring the girls emotions through talking to other children and exchanging ideas.

Here are a few of the pieces of writing from children in 4 Owls which are written from the girl’s point of view. We are very impressed with how much the children enjoyed their writing today. Please enjoy reading these and follow the link to listen to the story at home:
