Hi again, Class 2 (now Class 3!),
Are you still collecting words? If so, then you can e-mail me with more words and I’ll put them up here.
So think of words you like.
Maybe they sound fun, like buzz.
Or they could be interesting, like pyramid.
Or perhaps they’re really long, like wheelbarrow.
Or maybe you just like them, and don’t know why - it doesn’t matter.
To discover words you don’t just have to read. LISTEN to the words being used all around you. Listen to your friends, family, television, teachers... Everyone. Then when you hear a word you like, write it down in a little notebook or even collect words on a sheet of paper (or ask someone to write it for you).
Plus don’t forget to listen extra hard if you’re being read a story because stories are full of good words. Though you might also find a good word somewhere strange, like on a bottle of juice or shampoo. Words are everywhere - happy hunting.
I like lots and lots of words. Here are a few:

What words do you like?
Hi Latton Green Primary,
Between March and June 2009 I had a great time with Classes 2 and 5 (who are now Classes 3 and 6).
Back then, Class 5 wrote fantastic fairytales and they’re all in the book Once Upon a Time there was a Prince, a Knight and a Wolf... Everyone in Class 5 had a book and there are a few copies at school for you all to read.
Plus Class 2 had some brilliant ideas, words and illustrations for their book Tales from the Kingdom of Latton Green. I recommend reading this too.
Everyone impressed me and I hope you’re pleased with your books. Congratulations on all your hard work. Further below you’ll see the cover of the books (the front and the back because it’s printed as one big picture).
Happy reading, happy writing,
