  • Exploring Black Dog

    Published 18/11/20

    This term we have been exploring our wonderful book, Black Dog by Levi Pinfold. This is the heartwarming story of the Hope family who one day, are visited by a black dog. The dog gets bigger and bigger as the Hope family become more and more afraid. 

    Only Small, the youngest of the Hope family, has the courage to face the black dog. When it chases her through the snowy forest she shows no fear, so it grows smaller and smaller. 

    We've talked about Black Dog symbolising fear and our worries growing bigger but what then happens when we face our fears, just like Small Hope did.

    Why not talk to your child about this story and the parts they have enjoyed? They may even tell you about the new character they have designed!

    We are very excited to start innovating this story by adding our own characters. Look out for our stories next week; 'Grey Squirrel', 'Ginger Cat', 'Green Lizard', 'Brown Hamster' and more!

    10/12/20- Please find your child's story uploaded to their Seesaw journal. Enjoy!

  • The Colour Monster

    Published 10/11/20

    In PSHE this term we are thinking about our feelings and emotions and have been exploring the wonderful book- 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas. The friendly and relatable monster in this book changes colour according to his emotions. 

    Green: calm

    Blue: sadness

    Yellow: happiness

    Pink: love

    Red: anger

    Black: fear

    The children have been very sensible whilst sharing their different emotions and making our very own colour monsters this afternoon, allowed an opportunity to talk and reflect. We shall be talking to our colour monsters throughout the term to tell them how we are feeling and share our thoughts with them. We shall also be thinking about how to manage different emotions and how to look after each other.
