Olympian Chat for Kindle Users

Well done Year One! We have finished our first day of learning at home in July. Time for us to grab a cuddly friend and cosy up for a story.

Today we are listening to a story called Together We Can by Caryl Hart. This is the same author who wrote the Albie stories that we have all loved listening to in school. It is about how different we all are but also how precious and special. We think all of our little Hedgehog and Badgers are extra especially wonderful!

We hope you enjoy the story and we hope to see lots of you in the morning when Sonia Samuels pops onto Teams for a chat...
