Kayden J in Year 3 has enjoyed sharing Christmas picture books from the displays around school. His favourite so far is How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss.
Kayden says that he likes this because he has seen the film.
He comments on the pictures demonstrating his understanding of the story. Having read it together on a couple of occasions he is already beginning to join in with the text where it is becoming familiar.
I am hoping that Kayden will pick out a few more festive picture books to listen to over the next ten days. Although I feel that The Grinch will remain his favourite!
Kayden in Year 3 has been enjoying Hmm… by Colin McNaughton this week. We talked about all the jobs that Mr Wolf could do and Kayden told me he would like to be a cook. Kayden helped me to read the story today and recognised some of the tricky words he’s been learning. We were helped by the repetitive part of the text.

Ryelee has recently discovered the Mog stories by Judith Kerr. Here he is engrossed in Mog and the Bunny. We have also shared Mog the Forgetful Cat where clever Mog helps to catch a burglar. Ryelee is now enjoying his reading and we have lots of fun looking at the illustrations and talking about the detail. We have also ordered pictures from the beginning, middle and end of the story.
Aaron In Year 2 is learning some tricky sight words to help develop his reading fluency. We have made a collection of his favourite Minions on the back of my door, wearing the tricky words on their foreheads! Aaron enjoys practicing reading these words daily.
Layla achieved her target. She chose one of her favourite picture books for me to read to her. As I read Layla pointed to the text moving her finger left to right and page to page. She also joined in with some of the repetitive lines adding actions for words such as “whoosh”! So pleased with Layla. She is now enjoying sharing stories more and more.
Layla in Year1 is learning to recognise sight word ‘the’. She has made her own books illustrating them with characters from her favourite picture books. Layla has taken these home to share with her family. She is very proud of her books.
