Today, we had our final experience day as part of our writing unit on the book Float.  The main character, the little boy, has been out in the pouring rain, he's arrived home cold, wet and desperately sad because he's lost his treasured paper boat.  His dad makes him a hot chocolate to warm him up after a hot bath and a change into fresh, warm clothes.  We wanted to experience what the boy would have felt so we snuggled up in class with cosy blankets and enjoyed a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows while watching a film!  What a treat and we rinsed (as Mrs C would say) the experience for new vocabulary to use in our writing.
