This term Rosen have enjoyed reading ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. They had a great time exploring the story through sensory activities including walking through mud, feeling long wavy grass and splashing through water. They also enjoyed making their own bear cave and a bear trap. This then helped them role play and re-enact the story supporting the development of their speech and language. The children went on to draw pictures and write sentences related to the story.

Walsh group have been reading the book ‘Wonder’.
The book ‘Wonder’, by R.J Palacio, is an inspiring fictional story, but the writer was contacted by the parents of a boy who, after reading the story, felt the character was almost identical to their child.
They felt that the book, although fictional, helped other children understand their son’s condition and helped him to become more accepted by his peers.
