Lost and Found

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.
