Year 3 have been reading ‘Ottoline and the Yellow Cat’ as part of their English learning this term. The main character of this book is a girl called Ottoline who lives with her hairy companion Mr Munroe on the 24th floor of the Pepperpot Building. As the boys read through the book, they learnt that Ottoline is good at solving mysteries, in part due to her eavesdropping habit and in part because of curiosity to explore the world around her. With the help of Mr Munroe, Ottoline sets out to solve a spate of burglaries in her neighbourhood, which she links to the disappearance of lap-dogs all over the city.
Miss Wilson is certain that the boys would all agree with her in saying the book is gripping from the start! In addition to the gripping plot, the book is filled with illustrations that are intricate and fun.
The boys have worked their way through new chapters of the book each week and completed tasks based on the book. One of the tasks this week was to work with Ottoline in creating a disguise which would leave them unrecognisable. This disguise would support Ottoline with her clever plan to fool the thieving Yellow Cat.
The boys not only dressed up in the disguise but also wrote a letter of persuasion to Ottoline. Miss Wilson was blown away with the effort and creativity of the disguises and letters that followed. All the boys in Year 3 should feel immensely proud of what they have achieved. Miss Wilson is certainly proud!
