First published forty years ago, The Lighthouse Keeper series is a popular choice to go alongside a seaside topic. It is indeed Mrs Grinling who puts this to an end with an ingenious idea of hot mustard sandwiches for that brazen bunch of birds. Although not mentioned in the narrative, the illustrations depict a huge variety of ships and boats - can children spot and explain them all? They will decide which time adverbials and imperative verbs to use for each step whilst higher-ability children will be challenged to plan in adverbs they will use. They would be faced with children which needs them to focus on measurements and calculations such as addition and subtraction.Nevertheless, the book intelligently and apparently deliberately incorporates a lovely range of new vocabulary, such as 'industrious', 'concoct', 'appetising', 'scavenge' and 'devour' which children could incorporate in their own work. One day a bunch of greedy seagull’s spot Mr Grinling’s scrumptious lunch making its way to him and decide to devour the lot!
There is little dialogue in Hare and Tortoise, lots of physicality and gentle joking, a neat narrative shape and some catchy songs.
I have so many fond memories of my Dad reading this to me and I was forever captivated by the beautiful illustrations and the witty storyline. Will Mrs Grinling think of a way to stop the greedy seagulls from stealing the lighthouse keeper's lunch?
As schools across the UK and Europe wind down for the Summer holidays we wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate the incredible teachers everywhere who make musical theatre happen year after year.Everything you need to teach this exciting lesson is included in the pack including a detailed lesson plan, the engaging slideshow and all the printable resources and word banks you will need. Ebony Feare is a deliciously charismatic tortoise, languorous with an impressive range of reptilian faces and stances and a resonant singing voice. The presentation of the illustrations are a little odd in choice - some slightly blurry close-ups and odd angles but the Hamish's expression had me in stitches throughout and I cannot but admit that I was smitten by the seagulls who seem to have popped off the old 'oh err missus postcards of the 1930s. There are so many cross- curricular ideas to explore with this book such as vocabulary building, problem solving, healthy eating, the seaside etc.
