Writing Week - Life Long Ago workshops and Dinosaur visit

We have been learning about Life Long Ago and Dinosaurs....watch this space for the fantastic writing we will be completing during our Dinosaur writing week.

Listening to stories plays a vital role in giving children ideas for writing and increasing their vocabulary.  At Intack we have special story telling chairs that have been individually designed and created for specific year groups. Children come and read books or tell stories on them.

Children at Intack Primary School love to read.  Here are some of our exciting classroom reading areas.
