How do you know?
You don't find spoons in the wood!
While sitting around the campfire in the rain having made pancakes:
Tom: ‘Mmm I love pancakes. I’ve got lemon and sugar on mine. It tastes yummy’
Daisy ‘Mmm I like eating pancakes in the rain. It’s soggy and soft!’
Izzy: ‘I like pancakes. I didn’t know I liked pancakes!’
Joshua:I have to collect thin sticks the same size as a pencil. I have 1,2,3,4,5,6.
Lauren:I have 1,2,3,4,5. You have one more than me. I’m going to find some more… That’s too long. I will break it in half. I’ve got 2 more!’
I like walking to school even when it’s raining!
