World Book Day – Pirate Bookbug

We celebrated World Book Day with a pirate themed Bookbug session which was led by a friend of Cart Mill who is a Bookbug Leader, James.

The children loved being pirates and sang the pirate songs.  They listened attentively to the story “Ten Little Pirates” and followed the instructions for the action rhymes.

Book Week – Elmer

One of the children’s favourite storybook characters is Elmer. The children have been making a story book about Elmer, drawing and retelling some of the key points from the book.

We made the front cover, drew Elmer and wrote the title.

We were drawing the part of the story when Elmer was rubbing himself with berries to make himself grey.

Book Week – Making a book

Today some of the children were creating their own book about their favourite story.  They wrote the title, drew illustrations and retold the story which was scribed for them.  The children used well developed and sometimes complex language when talking about their story.

‘’They were safe back home.  Wendy put John and Michael to bed and settled down for her last night in nursery.’’  ‘’I want to draw Wendy.’’ ( Peter Pan book)
