World Book Week

This week we have been taking part in lots of activities linked to books and reading. On Monday, Miss Williams came in to read her favourite book ‘Eat Your Peas’. We enjoyed listening to the story and thought it was very funny. Luckily we are very good at eating our vegetables so we do not need to deals with our parents.

Today we shared our favourite classroom books with Year 2. We had a lovely time sharing books together and reading our stories. It was lovely to see you all reading with great enthusiasm!

Throughout the week we have been practising our poem ‘The owl and the pussycat’ ready for our performance in assembly on Friday afternoon. If you would like to practise with your child, Mrs Jones has provided the words below.

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”

Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?”
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

“Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?” Said the Piggy, “I will.”
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
