We returned from the Easter break to the captivating story of 'Leaf'. From Nursery through to Year 6, children have been engrossed in the journey made by 'Leaf' the polar bear, on his endeavour to find his way back home. This has resulted in some magnificent art displays created as a backdrop showcasing the incredible writing across school - from retelling of the story to letters and reports. Be sure to ask your child about the work they have done based on the book written by Sandra Dieckhman. If they have enjoyed the story as much as their writing suggests, you may be interested in some of her other books: 'The Magic Feather', 'The Secret Forest', 'Waiting for Wolf' and 'Then Dog Who Ate the World'. Sharing stories with your child and engaging them in books from an early age develops a love of reading which has a great impact on their writing as they grow up - feed their imagination!
