This half term, our KS1 author of the half term is Simon James.
Team Squirrel has read two of this author’s books, ‘Baby Brains Superstar’ and ‘Little One Step’. First, we read ‘Baby Brains Superstar’ – a book all about a Baby Rockstar! Izzy loved his big hit ‘I WANT MY MUMMY!’ and Jack’s favourite part was when the audience cheered. Roxy couldn’t believe that the baby’s mummy put headphones on her tummy!
Little One Step is about a little chick who was really tired and wanted to learn to fly. Ellie-Mae loved Little One Step’s resilience when he was learning to fly and Phoebe noted how he had to learn to walk before he could fly.
In a recent KS1 assembly, Mr Slattery read ‘The Birdwatchers’ to all three classes. This was a tale all about how a Granddad introduced his Granddaughter to the world of bird-watching; something she was captivated by. As William noted, it was all about how important family and nature are.
Overall, us Squirrels have really enjoyed the Simon James’ work and we can’t wait to hear about how other Team’s have enjoyed reading their author of the month!
