Secret Readers Who Was the secret Reader in the Nursery?

Mrs Fatah came to share her favourite book, How to Hide a Lion at School. It told a story about Iris’s and his lion. Lions aren't allowed at school, but Iris's lion doesn't want to be left behind. He even stows away on the school trip to the museum, causing much madness and mayhem as he hides among the exhibits. The children had a fantastic time listening to their adventures
On Tuesday 29th January Mrs Dabrowska came to share Maya’s favourite book, The Gruffalo.This is a rhyming story of a mouse and a monster. The little mouse goes for a walk in a dangerous forest. To scare off his enemies he invents tales of a fantastical creature called the Gruffalo. So imagine his surprise when he meets the real Gruffalo.
Ms Roe came into Nursery to read one of Sid’s favourite book, Little by Little. Scramble is a little otter who can't swim. At the beginning of the story, we find him in the middle of writing a list. It's his Can-do and Can't-do List. The Can't-do side just says 'Swimming'. One small word. But not being able to swim is a big deal for Scramble. It means he's teased by some of the riverbank animals. It means he feels left out when everyone else is in the water. And it means he spends hours and hours sitting on his own on the slippery rock wishing and wishing and wishing that he could. But something is going round in Scramble's head. Something his mummy has said. Something his older sister has said. 'You've got to start small' And so, slowly, slowly, Scramble builds his confidence in the water - overcoming each new incremental goal that he sets himself. Until, finally, Scramble really can swim!

Miss Smith came to read two of Alfie’s favourite book, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and The Hungry Caterpillar.

Ms Roe to read two of Harry’s favourite book, Hairy Maclary and Wombat Soup.
