We have an absolute treat for you this week, free reading worksheets for parents and teachers alike, as well as lesson plans for an engaging wee book Hattie Peck from the Story Station site which supplies amazing free software for schools.
This book tells the charming tale of a chicken called Hattie Peck, who loves eggs of all shapes and sizes, and she really wants an egg of her own. She leaves the safety of her coup, and goes on an adventure to find all the lost eggs in the world; but what is going to happen when they hatch?
