The Storm Whale

storm whale cover

This half term our power of reading book is 'The Storm Whale' By Benji Davies. The stroy is about Noi and his father who live in a house by the sea, his father works hard as a fisherman and Noi often has only their six cats for company. So when, one day, he finds a baby whale washed up on the beach after a storm, Noi is excited and takes it home to care for it. He tries to keep his new friend a secret, but but there's only so long you can keep a whale in the bath without your dad finding out. Noi is eventually persuaded that the whale has to go back to the sea where it belongs. For Noi, even though he can't keep it, the arrival of the whale changes his life for the better - the perfect gift from one friend to another.

Role Play

This week we have been acting out how we would feel if we were Noi or dad when his dad left for work each day and didn't return until it was dark. Look at our freeze frames below:

Storm Poems

We  have also thought about the stormy night at Noi's house and wrote group poems to describe the scene.
