Author Focus

 In 1 Cherry we LOVE to read and spend time with a book in our reading corner. 


Our author focus this half term is Dr. Seuss.

Dr. Seuss is an author, illustrator, poet, animator and film maker. Dr. Seuss has written lots of books such as: Cat in the Hat, One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish, Green eggs and ham, and Horton hears a who. 

As a class we read our first Dr. Seuss book for the South Pennine Academies Reading Challenge. It was 'One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish and we loved it that much we decided to read more Dr Seuss books this half term! 

Our favourite Dr. Seuss book book is Horton Hears a Who.
