Over the next two weeks we are going to look at a new story. It is written by Janet and Allen Ahlberg. They have written many stories for children. The year 1 class is named after these authors.
Have you read any books by Janet and Allan Ahlberg?
This is the front cover of the book we will be looking at. Can you see the title and the names of the authors?
What is a cop? What is a robber? Tell your grown up.
Look at the front cover. Can you spot who are the cops and who are the robbers?
Do you remember what a blurb is?
Yes, it tells us a little bit about the story. It tries to grab our attention to make us read the book! You find a blurb usually on the back cover of the book.
Here is the blurb for cops and robbers.
The robbers of London town plan a desperate crime on Christmas Eve - to steal all the toys they can lay their hands on! Fortunately, the robbers meet their match in brave Officer Pugh who leaps into action and arrests the villains - all except Grandma Swagg who manages to get away.
Today you are going to answer questions just about this blurb.
I would also like you to tell me if you think you will enjoy this story just from reading the blurb and give me a reason for your opinion.
Blue group – I would like you to look at the robbers in this story. Look at this picture. What can you see? What can you see in each room? What are the robbers doing? Today I want you to write sentences about what you can see. I have written the first sentence for you.
Today our learning is about sorting 3D shapes.
