Read Write Inc.
Year 2 had a most unusual time at a Read Write Inc session this week.
One of the Read Write Inc groups has been learning about metaphors, using the book 'Cottonwool Colin'. Once they were encased in their own protective layer and unable to move, the children found out for themselves that although they were very safe, they couldn't actually do anything, and so life is no fun when you are 'wrapped up in cottonwool'. The children demonstrated how being wrapped up feels by using their words of the week - 'pouting', 'irritable' and 'bedraggled'.
