How to Catch a Star by Year One

During Term Two, the Year One Classes read some books by author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers. You can also explore his website Oliver Jeffers World based on his books.

The first book the Year Ones read was called Imaginary Fred that Oliver Jeffers recently illustrated for Eoin Colfer. Who knew that so many Year One students had their very own imaginary friend! One boy even let his imaginary friend choose and scan his library book for him during one library lesson! The Year Ones had fun drawing and writing about either their own imaginary friend or creating an imaginary friend they would like.

The Hueys in the New Jumper written and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers gave the Year Ones an opportunity to discuss that there are times we can be like everyone and times when we can be different. It’s okay to be an individual and not like everyone else! Lots of original jumpers were created by the Year Ones for their own Hueys…

The Year Ones’ imaginations were really sparked when we read How to Catch a Star as you can see from the many creative and clever ways they have thought of how to catch a star…
