2S Reading INSPIRE

Thanks to all of the parents and carers who came to our ‘Horrid Henry’ workshop this morning. It was so lovely to see such a great turnout. Everyone had a great time listening to Francesca Simon’s book ‘Horrid Henry tricks the Tooth Fairy’ and the children answered lots of different kinds of questions about the story. We then thought about how we can read a story and draw what we understand about it. We used step-by-step instructions from Tony Ross, the famous illustrator of this and other books, to help us draw Horrid Henry. The children did a fantastic job of reading and following the steps. Take a look at the photos…

Keep up the amazing reading at home with your ‘Horrid Henry’ Christmas present and any other book you read. You could show us any illustrations you draw in the future… we would love to see them!
