    Year 2 have been enjoying Masha and the Firebird by Margaret Bateson-Hill. They have designed beautiful Earth, Air, Water and Fire eggs and you can see them in class. Not only did Y2 make eggs but a huge egg turned up in their class one day. Later on it hatched and a Firebird is thought to have emerged.

    Breaking away from tradition, Masha lives with loving parents (not a wicked step-mother, as per the traditional Baba Yaga story). When her mother gives her a box of paints, her father suggests she use them to paint eggs: ‘Why the Tsar himself had a collection, exquisitely decorated with gold and jewels!’ This turns out to be good practice, as one day Masha encounters the Firebird, who asks for her help to keep her four magical eggs safe from Baba Yaga. The illustrations showing Masha’s decorating of the Firebird’s elemental eggs are beautiful (and you can vote for which one you like best on the author’s website). All goes well with the first three eggs of Earth, Water and Air; Masha and the Firebird hide them in turn – but disaster strikes with the fourth egg, the egg of Fire, and Masha must journey deep into the forest to face Baba Yaga…
