This term in English we have been reading The Lost Thing. It is a humorous story about a boy who discovers a bizarre-looking creature while out collecting bottle-tops at a beach. Having guessed that it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, but the problem is met with indifference by everyone else, who barely notice it's presence.
We have been composing our own missing posters, informal letters and innovating our own stories inspired by this book and topical issues that are raised and paralleled with it.
