English - Tuesday 10th November

Because we are learning all about Toys today we would have started our Toytastic topic by reading a wonderful story about a little boy and his favourite toy. 

The story is called Dogger by Shirley Hughes.

Have you read this story before? It is a story that has been around for a very long time. It was published in 1977 which was 43 years ago! Maybe your parents read this story when they were your age, Miss James did! :)

Use today to watch the my video and the video of the story (sorry, Miss James doesn't have this story at home to read aloud to you!) and draw a picture of yourself with your favourite toy, like Dave and Dogger.

Youtube link for the story - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7pQMlSefXs


Extra challenge: Can you write some sentences about your favourite toy? What colour is it? Where did you get it from? Why is it your favourite toy? How long have you had it? Does it move or do anything special?
