PostHeaderIcon Reading for Fun Room 1: Silly Billy

Friday 17th of May 2019

Our book this week was called Silly Billy by Anthony Browne. Billy is a worrier and can’t sleep at night until his Grandma gives him some worry dolls to put under his pillow to take his worries away. The boys and girls listened very carefully to the story.

After the story we talked about our worries and then with help from the parents and Linda we made our very own worry dolls and designed little bags to take them home in.



The children were very proud of their worry dolls as you can see below.

I will know if the worry dolls have worked by the expressions on the children’s faces on Monday!

PostHeaderIcon Reading for Fun in Room 1: Aliens love Underpants

Friday 10th May 2019

Reading for Fun began in Room 1 last Friday and it was lovely to see such a great group of parents. Our book was the ‘pantstastic’ Aliens love Underpants.

The boys and girls impressed the parents with their knowledge of words such as author, illustrator, title, spine, blurb. As this was a rhyming book they helped out with the reading too.

After the story the children painted some ‘pantstastic’ illustrations with help and encouragement from the parents.

Thanks to the parents who helped out this week.

Reading for Fun will take place again this Friday 17th from 9.00am-10.00am in Room 1 and we hope you can come and join in the fun!
