How the crayons saved the rainbow ... (w/c 13/07/20)
This is the book that we are focusing on this week.
In this story the sun and the clouds are best friends. Together they keep the world warm, the gardens growing and the sky full of beautiful rainbows. However one day they get into a fight and refuse to be in the sky together. Which you can only guess means there are no longer rainbows.
In this story you discover that without rainbows, the colours start disappearing until the earth was left with no colour ... except for one little forgotten box of crayons ...
This story teaches the importance of team work and perseverance through the eyes of some colourful crayons!
We have been busy creating our own rainbows ...
