Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Halibut Jackson

Year 1 have been reading the book 'Halibut Jackson' by David Lucas and getting to know the main character.

After we had heard the story for the first time we could answer the question: 'What do you think of the book?'

Harry H said: 'It's good because I like all his suits that he makes.'

Alexander said: 'I liked it because all the people had the same costume.'

Elizabeth F said: 'I liked it because it was a story about being shy but you don't have to be shy.'


We then talked about how Halibut looked on the outside and how he felt on the inside:

Here are Kenley's ideas. A lot of us think that Halibut is a strange shape.

Lottie has recreated one of Halibut's suits beautifully.

Jiya and Jacob have also had lots of ideas about Halibut.


So, can you describe Halibut in 3 words?

Elena: 'Shy, happy and sad.'

Elizabeth F: 'Nervous, shy and lonely.'

Leanna: 'Shy, camouflage and suits.'

Vania: 'Scared, shy and creative.'


How would you describe Halibut Jackson?
