Some mysterious metal and foil objects landed in our school field this week. This caused a great deal of excitement with the children. Sebastian thought some aliens had dumped their rubbish in our field and Claire was sure that some aliens had fallen from the moon.
The children were relieved to hear that an alien had not landed in our school field and this excitement was created to introduce our new story, Beegu by Alexis Deacon. Children had the opportunity to create their own version of the story by ordering images before hearing the actual story. Oscar and Oliver had a good discussion about how the story might start. This way children were able to share their own ideas of what they thought happened in the story by using all the information given to them throughout the week.
