Description - Dancing in Soot by Richard Brown
Suitable for children in Year 2 (age 6), Dancing in Soot is from the Cambridge Reading genre strand Narrative Recounts, a strand which motivates children to explore their personal responses and make links to their own experiences. Each story in this set of nine marks a significant event from someone's childhood. Retold by Richard Brown, Dancing in Soot tells the true story about Deirdre George and her family. It happened in 1955, when Deirdre was eight and her brother was six. Deirdre was dressed as a princess, ready to go to the fair. Deirdre's mum tells her to keep her shoes and socks clean whilst the grown ups get ready. Deirdre agrees and then goes out to play with her brother ...the end to this humorous story is remembered by all her family!
