The Cat in The Hat

After reading Dr Seuss's The Cat in the Hat, Year 1 was posed with the question "If the Cat in the Hat came to your house what would you do?"

Here are some of the responses from 1E.

I would play hide and seek with Thing 1 and Thing 2. - Louise

I would play soccer inside. I would ride my scooter inside. I would eat chocolate. - Alexander

I would kick the soccer ball in the house and I would build a massive Lego-City and I would hide lollies under my bed and I would put my toys under my Mum and Dads bed. - Mason

I would make mud pie and have a party too. We will have food and have cake. - Grace
