Murphy Our Reading Dog

Muphy our reading dog comes into school every Thursday to listen to children read. He then writes a blog about all the stories he has listened to.

Watch out for his first blog later this week.

 

Here is a photograph of him when he was a puppy.

Hi there
 
It was s-o-o-o-o-o-o hot today that I told Mum it'd be a good idea if we sat near to an open door to hear Year 4, but even better than that, we sat outside - under a lovely shady tree!
 
First today was Daisy's Big Dig, and Mr Hofmeister had a digging party for everyone.  I wish I'd been invited - I'm very good at digging!
 
Next was What Happened to the Dinosaurs?  Did you know that the word "dinosaur" actually means "terrible lizard"?  I didn't know that!
 
After that was Captain Underpants and the Big Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy, where Melvin dreamed he built a robot and could combine himself with it - wow!  Imagine if I was a robot, I could ... hang on a minute, robots don't eat anything do they?  That's no good for me - I love my food!
 
Then it was Fantastic Mr Fox, where I heard about three farmers: first Farmer Boggis, the one who was enormously fat and ate three boiled chickens with dumplings every mealtime.  You'll have to read it too, to find out all about the other two farmers!
 
Last today was another Roald Dahl book - George's Marvellous Medicine, and Grandma told George he was growing too fast and that he'd only end up stupid and lazy!  Crazy lady!  Everyone knows that children are bright and full of energy!
 
I'm on my holidays now in Yorkshire and the Lake District, but I will be at Totton Library on Thursday 26 July, so maybe I'll see you then!

Hi there
I was with Year 3 today ... at least, I think it was Year 3!  I got confused because there was a lot of moving about!  First Year 3 were in Year 4 's class, then the other way round, then back to front, then upside down!  Just joking!  I wasn't really sure what was happening!
 
First of all I listened to Big R, and it was Carl's first time on a cattle drive.
 
Next was I've Got The Hic Hic Hiccups and Jack had to sing a song in his school concert, but ... oh no!  He had hiccups and all his friends had suggestions as to how to get rid of them.  This book had great sound effects too!
 
After that, I heard Spaceship Graveyard where the friends landed in a rocky valley where there were lots of crashed spaceships.
 
The Frankenstein Teacher was next, and Hannibal the hamster had an accident.  Oh dear!
 
Last today was The Worst Witch and poor Mildred had only been at school for two days when she crashed into a wall on her broomstick! Ooof!  (That's like woof, but there's no "w" in the front!)
 
Licky lick - on my special doggy lolly that Mum made out of my dog food and ice!  Nom nom!
