World Book Day - I Spy


Look carefully at the photograph of the first page of our whole school book  - Hermelin.  What can you see?  Look closely at the windows, outside the houses and all of the different characters. 


Using some adjectives (remember these are describing words), can you write some 'I Spy' sentences?



I spy a lovely, green lettuce.


You might want to add some extra detail to extend your sentences.




I spy a lady in a bubbly bathtub reading an interesting book.

Look carefully at this notice board

What do you notice about all of the signs?  They are all about things that have been lost.  Did you see these things in the picture of the houses above?  Will Hermelin be able to find them?


Guest Reader - Mrs Hoskins

Mrs Hoskins has videoed herself reading today's story.  The video is too large to be posted on the class pages but you will find the video in our Year 2 files on Teams. It is in the same place that the art drawing video was for Art Day. 






Can you be a detective like Hermelin?


We know that Hermelin is a detective. He is very good at looking for items that have been lost or following clues to find objects. 


Today, why don't you be a detective too and take part in some of these scavenger hunts around your home and garden.  Will you be a great detective like Hermelin?


There is an indoor and an outdoor scavenger hunt to choose from or you can complete both!



Party Food

Get Baking some yummy food for Hermelin's party!

In this picture we see that Hermlin had been invited to a special party to thank him for finding everyone's missing objects.



What party food could you make?


It might be:

some biscuits or cakes

some sandwiches 

a large cake 

a pizza 

fruit kebabs or a fruit salad


Maybe you could make a thank card or write Hermelin a thank you letter to go with your party food!

Make a thank you card!


The people of Offley Street have lots to thank Hermelin for. Make him a thank you card and thank him for finding all of the different items. You can see the things he found and where he found them below!
