This week our story of the week this week is Stick Man.

Stick Man, written by former Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, is a children’s story about an anthropomorphic wooden stick who becomes separated from his family home and his Odyssey-like adventure to return there. He is eventually reunited with his family in the “family tree” as a result of his interaction with Father Christmas.

This week we are looking at the story Room on the Broom.
The witch and her cat fly happily over forests, rivers and mountains on their broomstick until a stormy wind blows away the witch’s hat, bow and wand. They are retrieved by a dog, a bird and a frog, and each animal asks for a ride on the broom. They climb on, one after the next, until the broom is so heavy that it snaps in two! What will happen next as they tumble into a bog and meet a greedy dragon?

This week we are looking at the story the Scarecrow who didn’t scare.
Farmer Wallace has been very busy making this year’s scarecrow and was sure it would do a good job. But, as spring and summer arrived the woodland creatures took no notice of the scarecrow and weren’t frightened at all as they nibbled at the green shoots and ripening corn. What would the farmer do when he returned to view his harvest?
