Year 1: Mystery Objects , by Miss Jones

Year 1 had an unexpected surprise today. When the children returned from playtime, they discovered a mysterious cloth covering several different objects. There was a note that read: 

 

Here are some things to get you thinking about your new book.  

From 

?

 

The objects included: a suitcase, an umbrella, a torch, a penguin book and teddy, a lost poster and a boat! 

The children used the objects to make predictions about our new book, which we later discovered is called Lost and Found. I was very impressed with the children’s excellent  speaking and listening skills as well as super predictions. 

We can’t wait to read more of our new book ...
