Story time with Mrs Sheldon and Alfie (and a little Dougie too). Can you make your own telescope to be Timothy Pope? What other animals or objects might he mistake for a shark? Enjoy!

Robin Chicks

Not a story but very cool! My friends in Sheffield have a Robin's nest in their garden which is full of chicks at the minute. They sent me this video yesterday. Narrator Chris is Helen Greer's son....some of you may know her, as she teaches swimming at Darwin and takes P.E lessons in school.

Wow! Said The Owl (Take 2)

Here is the actual story (I had a few technical issues and a cameo in the introduction!). It is a really beautiful book, I apologise you can only see one page properly at some points but luckily it is the page with the main illustration. Perhaps resting my device on an indoor basket ball hoop with my toddler close by isn't the best way to film but I hope you enjoy the book as much as we do.

You Can't Take An Elephant On The Bus!

Still image for this video
The video clip was too long again (just) but I was going to finish by asking if you could think of a tip like those in the book? Where shouldn't you have an animal? For example never let a cow ride your scooter!
(I was also in the middle of explaining that poor little Dougie was upset in the background because he was very tired and his Daddy was trying lots of ways to cheer him up. His favourite toy to make him feel better is 'monkey'. What makes you feel better if you feel upset?).

The Pirates Next Door (Part 1)

Still image for this video
This fun pirate themed story has lots of very different characters in it. I also chose this story because it has plenty of speech which links to our speech bubble challenge in English this week. You can't beat a story full of rhyme either!
