Year One are going to be studying the book below in our literacy lessons for the next two weeks. We will be making story boxes and doing lots of lovely activities around the book.
Lila and the Secret of Rain
David Conway and Jude Daly
Lila’s Kenyan village is suffering a terrible drought. When Lila hears her mother say that ‘without water there can be no life’ she sets out with her grandfather’s help on a quest to uncover the secret of rain and so save the village.
This modern folk tale reminds us of how necessary and precious water is for survival and provides opportunity to explore together some larger themes of conservation and for the children themselves to consider ways in which they themselves can make an active contribution.
