What an amazing start to our reading week! We have started looking at a picture book by Aaron Becker. We looked at images from the book and tried to put them in order. We still don’t know the title of the book! We also used our researching skills in computing to answer a questionnaire about the author.

Please join us to read some stories and have a cup of tea on Wednesday morning at 9:05 in the school hall.
