This year for Book Week each teacher was asked to choose a book they wanted to read to their class and to complete an art activity to accompany the book. I chose the Winning book ‘Mr Huff’ by Anna Walker.
I loved reading this book over and over and talking to the students about the meanings behind the story and the pictures. Such a powerful message and suitable for all ages. I think every family should have a copy of this book at home.
The art activity was a huge success. The students all love loved making their own special Mr Huff to share secrets and worries with. Their own special worry doll. We all need one of these!
Another art activity that turned out striking was the year 5/6 scrapper board based on the book ‘One Step At a Time’. These works of art are on display in the library.
When their parents go missing on a routine mission, nine children are left to survive on an often dangerous and unforgiving world. Thirteen year old Freddie, together with her brother Pierre, must ensure the safety and survival of the younger children, whilst also trying to solve the mysterious disappearance of the adults. Mars holds a secret so devastating, it will shake the foundations of the Red Planet and change the way humanity views the universe.
What happens next………………
