   Today, Room 8 wrote about what Greedy Cat likes...

Remember this is the start of the year and we are still learning a lot about writing.  

These are some things that we have learnt so far...

- We have to start our writing in the margin (also known as the trunk of the tree)
- We have to put a capital letter at the start of every sentence
- Capital letters can only be used at the start of a sentence, for the name of someone and/or the name of a place
- All our sentences must end with a full stop.

There is so much for us to remember and learn, and sometimes we forget, but we are only 5 and we know the more we practice the easier it is going to be to remember.

We are also learning that mistakes are great learning opportunities. If we make a mistake we can then learn how to do something the correct way or a better way.

  2. Hello Room 8. I have enjoyed exploring your class blog. Your writing about Greedy Cat is fantastic! What gorgeous Greedy Cats you all drew! I can't wait to show them to my class on Monday who are brand new to school and just beginning to learn to write stories. Our big book next week is 'What does Greedy Cat like?' so you will have to check out our blog soon to see some more Greedy Cats! If I was Greedy Cat I would like chocolate cake best too!
