In Year 1 our class author is the wonderful Julia Donaldson. She has written many children’s books which are shared and loved by many. We have used ‘Superworm’, ‘A Squash and A Squeeze’ and ‘Monkey Puzzle’ so far, as our focus texts in class, and have based our reading corner on Tiddler.
The children have enjoyed learning about Julia Donaldson and found out that she loves to sing and play the piano in her free time. Did you know ‘A Squash and A Squeeze’ started off as a song before it was made into a book? Find out more about her here http://www.juliadonaldson.co.uk/
Over the year we will continue to look at other texts as a focus and also for pleasure. Which ones have you read?
