The children wrote this story about being friends as a whole class. The children are "getting sad" with each other - based on who is playing with who, who their friends are, and how they feel when people shout and hit. They have a lot to say, and I think we will be exploring this thread in tandem with our storytelling and bookmaking project. The two main characters in this story have already reappeared in one child's book.
