Building on our start yesterday, we talked about what does treasure mean to you. Does it have to be gold buried in the sand? Or can it be something more personal and precious?
Today I would like you to draw your treasure and write a paragraph or two to explain why this item is special to you. You can see an example of mine below. Maisy can you write a second paragraph please.
'My treasure is Bagrilla (see below). He was given to me when I was a very young child. He looks quite grumpy but looks can be deceiving as he was always a comfort to me whenever I felt scared or alone. Even though I had many toys when I was younger and have since grown out of them and given them to someone who will play with them more (like Andy from toy story 3) I have always kept Bagrilla and always will. He is my treasure.
Fun fact- he is named Bagrilla because I could pronounce Gorilla as a child.
