We will start the new term by looking at the book 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers. The children will make predictions about the text, retell the story using different drama techniques, create story maps and innovate new versions of the story to include a different animal.
When we arrived in the classroom on the first day back we found some mysterious, snowy footprints. We also found a penguin, a suitcase and a rowing boat. Together we thought of some questions to ask the penguin.
Next we looked at the front cover of the book. The children made predictions to say what they thought the book would be about. After reading the story the children answered some questions by writing in full sentences.
We thought carefully about the characters and the children completed a role on the wall activity so that they could write character profiles.
