This week in English we have been reading the story ‘Pumpkin Soup’ written by Helen Cooper. In this story three friends spend all their time happily making pumpkin soup until one day Duck decides that he wants to be the head chef. He falls out with his two friends Cat and Squirrel and leaves home and walks into the woods. At the beginning of the week we wrote descriptions of the woods and tried to think of similes to describe the features of the setting.

E.g. The trees had branches which were bent and twisted like an old man.

We also made pumpkin soup and some of us had a go at adding ingredients and stirring!

Most of us enjoyed the taste of the soup and it left a lovely smell in the classroom that lingered for most of the week.
