How to Catch a Star
by Oliver Jeffers
We read ‘How to Catch a Star.’ Then we put on our ‘Green Thinking Hats’ and tried to think of some creative ways we could catch our own stars. Here are some of our wonderful ideas.
- Get a long, long ladder, the longest ladder in the whole world.
- Put rainbow lollypops in a mouse trap and catch it. Stars should like rainbow lollypops.
- By riding in an airplane.
- Build a rocket ship shaped like a star and the star will think it’s a star and be tricked.
- Go up in a rocket ship that never ever runs out of petrol.
- Climb up a rainbow to reach the stars.
- Go in a rocket ship way up to the stars.
- I am going to wish a star and I won’t tell anyone incase it doesn’t come true.

|On Thursday we made a mosaic picture of the sun. First we decided what colours we would use. Then we cut the paper from magazines and advertising mailers into little pieces.|
|Next we used our glue sticks to glue the paper into a big circle.|
|We used red, yellow, orange and dark brown to make our sun because we wanted it to look like a fire.|

We put on our yellow hats to help us think about all the good things we know about the sun.
Here are some of our thoughts...
- The sun makes us nice and warm.
- The sun helps us see things without lights.
- The sun makes the day time.
- The sun makes things grow like trees and flowers.
- The sun makes me happy.
- The sun makes our washing dry.
- The sun makes things more fun.
- The sun helps flowers grow.
- It makes things nice and warm.
- It would be really really cold if there was no sun
