Beech Class have been acting out the story of Beegu and thinking about how the characters felt at different times.

A spacecraft crash landed in Beech class, the  children had to try and work out what had happened, where might it have come from?  Some children were woken in the night by strange noises, could it have been the spaceship crash landing?
