This story can be used as a one-off (that's how I originally used it) but from September 2015 to December 2015 I based my Y3 French scheme of work around it to... and I feel it worked!! The best way to share this book though I feel is in 2 parts... so you leave the children wanting more!!
Please get in touch if you want more details about how I used the book to introduce French to Y3 pupils and it was the basis of our work for a term. I have a class set of them which you are welcome to borrow too if you are interested.

I love using this story because you can keep stopping your reading/telling to ask the pupils what they think will happen next… they come up with some cracking ideas!! It is really engaging and appeals to little ones as well as bigger children!

The children will enjoy greeting the characters as they encounter them in the story and designing/writing about them in their books. They will use thinking skills (deduction and prediction) as you question them throughout. They will feel real emotions (a roller coaster of emotions!) and will be relieved at the end!
