Enjoy the story read by Lovely Liss from Kingfisher's Class. I have also been recorded reading it for tomorrow by Terrific Teresa, uploaded by the IT star Fantastic Fi. Today's activity has been selected by the Kind Kate.

There is also a you tube video of the story on our Wren's page.

I hope you all enjoy it. Steve Antony has written a few "Queen" stories. They are all fun but also informative as set around London, The UK, The World and Space. The illustrations are fantastic!!

      The reply " Hello everyone I'm alright thank you very much"


2. This song is sung to the tune of "Tommy Thumb". It is a way to teach  

     surnames too. I have put my name in as an example.

     " Cate Brodholt, Cate Brodholt where are you?"

       The reply " Here I am, here I am how do you do"


Activity 1 - Hello song and activity

Good morning! Today we are doing a lovely story massage to our story ‘The Queen’s Handbag’. The guidance has the words on and lovely Liss from Kingfishers has recorded herself reading it. Do the movements along with the story. It is such an amazing activity and you can use the guidance to adapt the story massage to your favourite nursery rhymes or stories.



Activity 2 - My communication and literacy

Good morning!

  1. Follow the link below to listen to the class story ‘The Queen’s Handbag’ read by Liss.
  2. Please see the lesson activity plan below.


Activity 3 – My thinking and problem solving  

Today we are going to look at all of the transport the Queen uses in our story ‘The Queens Handbag’.


  1. Go through the story and see what transport you kind find. Next find your worksheet ‘Transport I spy’ you will need to count all of the different transport and see what we have the most. Challenge can you count how many wheels we have on the page?
  2. We also have a number matching activity. Can you count the dots on the cars and put them in the right place.
  3. Now a chance to get outside. Take your car colour survey out on a walk with you. Marking off all the different colour cars, you see.

Too easy -   Why not try one out our transport dot to dots. Working on your pencil control as well.
