Kes Gray must have been very impressed by our author of the week work last week, as he’s left us a comment on our blog! How exciting!
As part of our World Book Day activities, each year group has been learning about an author this week. Our author of the week is Kes Gray, who has written lots of funny books.
You can find lots of interesting information about Kes Gray by clicking here to visit his website.
On Tuesday we enjoyed ‘Oi Dog’, which is the sequel to ‘Oi Frog’. We wrote in role as the animals from the story…
On Wednesday we read the hilarious ‘Quick Quack Quentin’ and enjoyed a vowel hunt!
Then we took the vowels out of our names which really tickled us!
Then we read information about Kes Gray and answered questions. Did you know that Kes Gray supports Manchester United?
On Friday we enjoyed our favourite Kes Gray book – Nuddy Ned! Here is our very own Miss Coggan reading the cheeky story:
We planned and wrote our own versions of Nuddy Ned! What do you think?
Here are some more Kes Gray stories to enjoy at home:
Wow! What a wonderful World Book Day! We looked AMAZING in our costumes. Thank you to parents for your fantastic efforts.
We enjoyed parading our outfits during a special assembly…
Congratulations to our lucky winners!
We were very brave and stood up in front of the whole class to talk about our favourite books. Well done boys and girls!
Earlier in the week Years 1 and 2 enjoyed a special Reading Morning and were even treated to snacks!
We have enjoyed some bookish maths, such as sorting different types of books onto a Carroll diagram:
We performed some of our favourite Michael Rosen poems, too!
