Lost and Found

This week we have been reading ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers.

We have predicted what might happen in the story and then after reading the book, we have sequenced pictures. In our topic lesson we made some stick puppets and had a go at acting out the story. Later in the week we are going to retell the story in our own words.

You might like to watch these children from 2SG and 2CL telling the story with their puppets.

World Book Day

World Book Day

Today we are celebrating World Book Day!  Lots of children have come to school in fancy dress. We started the day with an assembly. Each class was given a lovely box of new books, and we listened to the story of Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown. Some of our teachers were dressed up and the acted out parts of the story for us!

This is what the blurb says

“I’ve lost my mum!”

“Hush, little monkey, don’t you cry,

I’ll help you find her,” said Butterfly.

But somehow Butterfly keeps getting it wrong. Will Monkey ever find his mum?
