The Blue Balloon

The Blue Balloon


The children in Year 1 have been learning about the Mike Inkpen story The Blue Balloon. The children couldn't believe their eyes when they came to school and found their classroom full of balloons. One balloon looked different to the rest and the children soon found out that this was a magic balloon that wouldn't pop no matter how much they squeezed or squashed it. The blue balloon took the children on an adventure and when they returned they wrote all about it.
