So much by Trish Cooke is our core book this term


This delightful picture book captures the warmth of family life and a significant family event in a young child’s life. There’s a birthday party and lots of excitement but also lots of waiting for the big event to happen. This highly patterned story features some authentic Caribbean language patterns, adding variety, interest and extra enjoyment.

Brown bear brown bear what do you see?

This is also a core book this term. 

Coloured artwork and favourite animals make this rhythmic story the perfect introduction to looking and learning about colours. Each page leads seamlessly into the next and young children will delight in Eric's colourful collage animals and simple repetitive language.

Goldilocks and the three bears 

A tired and hungry girl finds the house of the three bears where she helps herself to food and then goes to sleep.

We're going on a bear hunt 

 Follow and join in the family's excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!


We had a visit from the police. We enjoyed trying on the uniform and learning how to turn the siren on!! 

Little Owl  and the Christmas star 

It is a silent night and Little Owl is sitting in their tree with a waiting feeling, when a star sparkles along. "Come with me," says the star, and Little Owl follows, as do three men on camels and shepherds with their sheep. They soon find themselves part of the happiest scene on Earth.
