This term we have been reading No Dinner by Jessica Souhami.
This is a lively retelling of the traditional Indian story of the Old Woman and the Pumpkin. The dramatic illustrations and graphic use of print inspire children to talk about the story of an old woman who sets off to visit her granddaughter on the other side of the forest. Her journey is a dangerous one and tests her clever plan to outwit the fierce animals she meets along the way.
The strong story pattern and repetition helps children to join confidently with the reading.
We tried Indian food just like the old woman had at her grand daughters house.
Some of us had our poems published in a book.
We all wrote letters to Father Christmas
We went for a walk and posted our letters to Father Christmas.
