Stories by the same author - Oliver Jeffers

 

We have been using stories by author Oliver Jeffers in our English and our whole class guided reading sessions during Autumn 1. 

We have had a very important visitor from the South Pole - a penguin called Snowy, who we quickly realised was from the story Lost and Found. 

 

We have done lots of character descriptions for the main characters in the story Lost and Found using Role on the Wall. We have read the story Lost and Found and also watched the short movie.

From this, we then were able to sequence the story in order and talk about what was happening in each picture, in order.

 

We split the pictures up into the beginning, middle and end of the story and then used Talk for Writing to aid in our orally retelling of the Lost and Found story. We put actions to words to help us. 

 

In Guided Reading sessions, we looked at other books that were written by Oliver Jeffers and discussed the similarities and the differences and have added our thoughts and opinions to our Whole Class Guided Reading Floor Book.
