Manchester City Squirrel FC
Mr. Stott had witnessed a squirrel on the football pitch before a Manchester City match. We discussed why the squirrel was on the pitch (yellow sentence strips), how the squirrel felt being struck by a rake (red sentence strips) and how the groundsman could have got the squirrel off the pitch (thought bubbles).
To the classes astonishment Mr. Stott had become the new owner of the squirrel and brought him into school. The squirrel stood like a statue as we stroked him.
We found out a squirrel’s home is a drey so we decided to build lots of homes for our new friend.
