Once there was a village, a village in a valley, a valley in Northumberland.  Welcome to Part 1 of How the Forest Came to Be...


The girl lost her child, the Earl lost his mother, Zoe lost her ring and her cat!  

When you lose something special, a person, a pet, an object, a thing you were looking forward to, writing about it can help.

This activity will encourage children to reflect on things they may have lost, and also what they have found, and create some acrostic poetry.
