What We're Reading
At the end of every school day we have story time, where the children are read to by their teachers.
Reception and Nursery are reading
Owl Babies, by Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson.
Three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, wake up one night in their hole in a tree to find that their mother has gone. So they sit on a branch and wait... Darkness gathers and the owls grow anxious, wondering when their mother will return. But, at last, she does and they bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home.
