Last week we read the book Stuck by Oliver Jeffers. This book is a tale of trying to solve a problem by throwing stuff at it. In the story, the main character, Floyd gets his kite stuck up a tree. He throws up his shoe to shift it, but that gets stuck too. So he throws up his other shoe and that gets stuck, along with… a ladder, a pot of paint, the kitchen sink, an orang-utan and a whale, amongst other things!
After reading, we discuss Floyd’s mindset and how he never gave up getting his kite down. Then we decided to make our own version of Stuck to share with the whole school community at our special TEAM assembly.
Below you watch Oliver Jeffers read stuck as well as our version of the story.
