Story Time


Here is just a snippet of some of the classes favourite story time books this half term.



Nursery have enjoyed reading the book called No-Bot by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.

It is a story about how a robot lost his bottom and how his friends helped him to look for it. The children have enjoyed talking about what the robots bottom was used for, especially the bird using it as a nest and the bear using it as a drum kit!!

We also thought about different things that the robots bottom could be used for and came up with great ideas!



Owl Class have enjoyed reading ‘The Troll’ by Julia Donaldson.

The story switches from a Troll who lives under the bridge to pirates who are sailing on their ship. Different animals pass the Trolls bridge however; they keep telling the Troll that if he goes to the next bridge he will find a goat. Meanwhile the pirates are hunting for treasure on an island.

The children loved the illustrations in the story and that there were two stories going on in one book and it kept switching to each story.


Newt Class have absolutely loved reading the Rabbit and Bear series by Julian Gough and Jim Field this half term.

They follow the lives of a very kind and loveable bear and grumpy little rabbit, the two become fast friends and we were able to follow their funny adventures as they meet other woodland creatures. This is a great series to introduce the children to longer books as each page is beautifully illustrated.



Badger Class have enjoyed listening to and reading the story Polly Parrot Picks a Pirate by Peter Bently.


Polly Parrot is looking for a pirate. Not just any pirate, one that will make the perfect pet. But finding the perfect pet pirate isn't easy. This picky parrot might just end up with more pirate than she expected . . .

Why not check out this funny book with lots of rhyme.
