The Day The Crayons Quit

When children in Year 2 were read the story of 'The Day The Crayons Quit' they were so inspired they wrote a letter to the crayons asking them to come home.

The award-winning book by Drew Daywalt is about a boy called Duncan who opens his box of crayons to do some colouring, only to find they had all quit.


The crayons all had a complaint about the other colours - beige is tired of brown, blue needs a break from colouring in water and orange and yellow are no longer speaking to each other. 

After discussing the story in class, children wrote a letter to the red crayon as if they were Duncan, in the first person, asking the colour to come back.

Staff were so impressed with the work that they wanted to share it with you. Here are a few letters for you to see. 





                 The work is on up on the wall for all the staff and children to enjoy.
