Year 1 English – Wanted: The Perfect Pet

In Year 1, since returning to school, we have been sharing the story ‘Wanted: The Perfect Pet’ by Fiona Roberton.

The main focus of this story is to teach and remind us about the importance of friendship.

The illustrations are beautiful and the children did some lovely drawings of the duck, Spot, feeling different emotions.

They also had a go at ‘hot seating’ where they pretended to be Henry, the boy in the story, or Spot. They asked questions and had to answer in character.

To link in with the book ‘Wanted: The Perfect Pet’ we thought about the pets in our school, Wiggles and Squiggles, the school guinea pigs.

Wiggles came to visit our class and we wrote a factual report about guinea pigs; what they need and eat. We got to stroke him too, he thought we were very well behaved!
