Room on the Broom 

This is our new book for October/November. The Halloween inspired story is about a friendly and kind witch who stumbles upon a little trouble when her broom can't quite fit all her friends on. Watch the story below to find out more about this exciting tale. 

After reading the story for the first time children acted out different scenes from the book. What a difference a term makes! the children's acting skills and understanding of a book they had only just read was outstanding and we are all very proud of their efforts.

Go Elliott's class!

The Snail and the Whale

This is our current book in KS1. It is the story of a tiny snail who has big dreams of exploring the world and meets a whale to help her in her quest. But disaster strikes when the whale is beached in a bay. Can the tiny snail think of a plan big enough to save him? 

Find out more about the book by reading along with it on this video below. 

The Snail and the Whale Julia Donaldson

The thrilling tale of a tiny snail and a great big grey-blue humpback whale. Read by Eluned Michael Music by Kate Rusby (Please check out this book from your local library.)

As a class children watched this video. Following this, pupils worked in groups and acted out different parts of the story. Children then showcased their work to the class and their peers had to work out (from their very imaginative acting skills) which character each child was and what part of the story they were acting out.
