Good morning, Year Two! I hope that you are all well.
Did you enjoy reading ‘The Enormous Turnip’ yesterday? The characters in the story are kind and helpful because they help the little old man pull up the enormous turnip. The little old man thanks them all by inviting them for a turnip dinner. Think about the other stories that you have read. Are there any kind and helpful characters in these stories?
