We have continued with our Elmer the Elephant topic and the children have collaged some lovely Elmer models. They also wrote letters to Elmer, asking him to tell them jokes. They put them on the Magic Message Tree. The next morning the 'magic' had worked. The children all had letters containing jokes which they began to read. This may be why they are telling you jokes at home!
We are continuing to put new sounds for practise in the book bags. Please work on the Tricky Words- I, no, go, to, the, and- also. We are reaching the end of the second phonic phase and the children need to know these. It was a pleasure to listen to the children read. Thank you for your support at home. It makes all the difference.
