Last week the Reception children had a special treat. Maria Buckley from Gateshead libraries came into school to read us a story. She read ‘The Runaway Pea’ by Kjartan Poskitt, which the children thought was fabulous. Theo said “I liked it when the pea fell into the tomato sauce the best”. Maria then read to us ‘The Cave’. We could see a pair of eyes and we tried to guess what animal it might be. The story gave us clues on what it could be and we were suprised to find out who was hiding in the darkness. We were really excited when Maria told us we could take our own copy home.
