Hothfield 6Rs – Daisy the Responsible Dog

Can you write a story or poem about Daisy?  Look at the pictures of working dogs on display next to Mrs Burgoyne’s room, or do some research about working dogs yourself.  Think about all the qualities of responsibility these dogs need – discipline, loyalty, focus, determination.  This should give you ideas for your story/poem.  Blog your piece of writing and I will put the best up on the display by Mrs Burgoyne’s room.
