The day the classroom quit!

Friday 29 June 2018

This fortnight, we have been reading The Day the Crayons Quit.

In this story, Duncan comes into the classroom and discovers his crayons have quit for various reasons. Red Crayon is tired of colouring strawberries, Santas and fire engines; Orange Crayon and Yellow Crayon are fighting over who is the true colour of the sun; Blue Crayon is used too much so it short and stubby and Grey Crayon is fed up of colour such big animals like Hippos and Whales.

This week, we have written our own stories pretending to be different items from the classroom that quit. The children came up with some really imaginative ideas as to why each item might quit. Here is a few examples of our letters to Duncan.
