In English, the children created freeze frames in role as Ben and the whale from our class book 'The Hidden Forest'. They thought about what their character might have said. 






This week the children took part in a workshop where they learnt about self esteem and the power of words. Through this workshop the children learnt how to protect their self esteem, about being resilient and how words can affect people.
