2A Miss Sivills

Unit 2, Spring Term 

Class 2A have had a great time this term listening to our mystery readers and trying to work out who the next one will be !

Our last 3 stories were all very different and we loved each of them.  Riley’s dad shared The Dinosaur that Pooped the Bed by Tom Fletcher, a truly disgusting tale! Autumn’s Grandma shared a Pipkin of Pepper by Helen Cooper with beautiful illustrations. Finally, Miss Sivills’ mum finished the term with two fabulous stories, Buzzbee in a Can by local authors Patsy and Tom Allen and a cautionary tale about friendship by John Yeoman, The Heron and the Crane.  Thank you all so much!  We can’t wait to see who will be our next mystery reader!

If you would like to be a mystery reader in KS1 please let one of the class teachers know that you are available on Friday afternoons.
