Lila and the secret of rain.

We are working with a book called:
Lila and the secret of rain by David Conway & Jude Daly.

It is about a little girl who lives in a village in Kenya where they are desperate for rain.

Together, we learned some interesting facts about Kenya from this website:

Here are some photographs of us working together to create story-maps (the story in pictures). Story maps help us to re-tell the stories we read.

These are some more 'new friends' in Y1H....
The Kindness Elves & Fairy have come to stay. So far, they have been very quiet and just watched everyone working....
What will they do when they are feeling settled? Do keep an eye open!
Bill & Bob, Coeur, Princess Flavia
Oh no...... where is Bernie, the bearded elf? He must be hiding!!

Meet Ferdinand (Daddy Fox) & Flint (Little Fox)!

They have come to stay in Yr1H and are really looking forward to having adventures with each of you.

Ferdinand & Flint have their very own travelling case and 'story' book. In both the front and back of their special little book, there is some information to make their stay in your home more comfortable!!

Please do add photographs, (take them out and about with you - even shopping...) and Parents do encourage/help your child to write about the foxes. The writing should be very much about the foxes and not merely children's news....

Hopefully, 2 children per week will be able to take home the foxes.... Later, I hope to open up the Blog so that we can all post about them on here too!!

In the meantime - have FUN with our new friends!!
