It seems that the book they have been reading, called ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’ is leading them to believe that the giant from the story is leaving his clothes in the school! We were shocked to find his shoelace in our classroom and then we found a footprint, a kind message and his neck tie in the playground. Next week we will map out where we have found all of his things so that he can find them again if he ever needed to. We have also written a diary about what we found, how we felt about it and asking questions that we would like answered. If this continues, we are going to have to write a letter to Mr Laird, letting him know about the strange happenings in Year 1 and asking him for help.
We are currently learning about materials and reading ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’ is helping us explore different fabrics and their properties. We will also be learning about people who help us and the protecting clothing they wear, such as policemen and firemen.
