Foundation Stage 1 and 2 - Acorns, Pine Cones and Conkers


Mrs H Edwardson
Foundation Teacher

My favourite children's author is Roald Dahl. I don't have one particular favourite book of his but some of my favourites include Danny the Champion of the World, Matilda, The Witches and The BFG. I think the reason why Roald Dahl is my favourite author is because there is something for everyone! A real mix of stories!

My favourite children’s book is Whatever next by Jill Murphy. It is a beautifully illustrated picture book about a bear that wants to travel to the moon. This story is fun and exciting, it provided opportunity for your imagination to take over.  Jill Murphy captures a child perfectly through little bears character. I love how from seeing the moon and the owl at the beginning he has created lovely  play through finding object in the house to represent other...just like how children do in imaginative play. I can’t wait to share this book with my little boy.


Mrs T Ishmilh
F2 Teacher - Conkers

My favourite story is 'The Gruffalo' by Julia Donaldson. The Mouse is my favourite character - imagine how scared she was, walking through the wood where lots of other animals wanted to eat her. But she uses her thinking skills creatively to help herself.

Julie Donanldson is also my favourite author - I like the way she writes in rhyme which helps me remember the story when reading it, with lots of expression, to my pupils.


Miss M Smith
F2 Teacher - Pine Cones

My favourite children’s book is ‘Peace at Last’ by Jill Murphy, because the bear family reminds me of mine, and the ending always makes me smile!


My favourite author is J.K Rowling, because she has such a vivid imagination.

My favourite children's book is'We're all going on a bear hunt' and I love the way Michael Rosen tells the story. His expression and actions help children learn new words that they can then put in their writing


Mrs E Hanmer
