lose their leaves and how spiders spin

their webs and why the sky is blue he

told anyone who would listen rabbit was

very young

and wanted to learn I want to learn

everything there is to learn said rabbit

and he bounced across the field and back

again but I can only teach you if you

brown and before he got any further

pointing at yellow flowers and red

berries and white butterflies donkey

chewed crossly on a piece of grass and

waited and waited when at last he came

moon and the stars and before he got any

further rabbit was rushing around

pointing at the clouds and the giant

foxes and owls he could see among them

the next day donkey began again to tell

rabbit why the sky was blue but before

he got very far

rabbit wanted to know why birds could

fly in some fight why birds could fly

and he couldn't and before he got any

further

rabbit was running up a slope and

leaping off it to make bird noises and

flapping his paws donkey chewed crossly

on a piece of grass and waited and

waited rabbit didn't come back donkey

second down for his sleep then looked

across the field he couldn't see rabbit

anywhere he began to worry he's young he

said to himself he might have gotten

into trouble I'd better go and find him

he set off slowly across the field after

a few steps he came to a clump of yellow

flowers

he looked among them for rabbit rabbit

wasn't there but he watched the bees

collecting pollen from the flower heads

sticks to their legs he said to himself

I never noticed that before

donkey set off again

more quickly this time and he trotted

along and he looked at the sky and he

saw Willy sheep among the clouds it's a

long time since I played that game he

smiled to himself he came to the top of

the slope that rabbit had run down he

looked around to make sure no one was

watching him then he began to gallop

when he reached the bottom he galloped

on enjoying the wind tugging at his ears

and ruffling his coat it's a long time

since I felt that feeling he laughed to

himself then he saw a rabbit sitting

quite still in the middle of the gorse

bush Shh

said rabbit when he saw donkey I was

worried about you whispered donkey what

are you doing I'm counting the spots on

ladybird said rabbit did you know that

some have more spots than the others

no said donkey in amazement I didn't do

that I know a lot of things but I didn't

know that let me see rabbit and donkey

looked together they sat very still and

counted spots until rub it big Gert

you'll talk ii said rabbit can you lift

me out of here I'm stuck donkey smiled

hang on to my ears then he said lowering

his head so that rabbit could reach he

pulled him out and set him on the ground

come said donkey we'll take you back

home today you've taught me something

new tomorrow I will teach you why the

sky is blue but I know why the sky is

blue said rabbit you do said donkey it's

because it was the only colour left in

the paint box said rabbit

don't he smiled donkey laughed donkey

cheered and kicked his legs in the air

then he jumped and he ran and he rolled

and he bounced across the field and back

again that's the funniest thing I've

heard for a long time said donkey climb

on my back and I'll carry you but you

must sit still donkey said rabbit why is

the sky blue

donkey began to tell rabbit about

sunlight and the dust in the air but

before he got very far rabbit had fallen

asleep

donkeys smiled to himself never mind he

said it can wait until morning enough

flee last blue page of our book that's

the end of our story it's a really cool

story and it teaches us about all the

different ways that we can learn and all

the things we can learn from each other

I think you've all worked very very hard

over the last few weeks learning at home

and I think you should all be very very

proud of yourselves and hopefully you're

spending this time relaxing and maybe

having lots of fun and trying some new

activities at home can't wait to hear

all about them when we start back at

school and check in next time for

another story see you soon bye everyone
