This week in Year 1…

This week we having been focusing on The Whale Song by Dyane Sheldon and Gary Blythe. It is a beautiful picture book that has large images of the sea, whales and the characters showing expression and emotion. The author describes the whales by writing lovely similes such as ‘the ocean was filled with whales, they were as big a hills’ and ‘peaceful as the moon.’ The children were inspired by the text and they were encouraged to write their own similes.
