The Elves and the Shoemaker

This week we have been reading the story of The Elves and the Shoemaker.  I’ve got to admit I’ve never really used this story with a class before but I think it has been one of my favourite weeks of our traditional tales expedition so far.  As always I have been amazed by the response from children in Class 1.  I have seen some truly wonderful activities taking place and have also seen lots of shoe designs that I would love to be able to buy in the shops!!

Here are just a few examples of our beautiful work this week:

Thank you to all the children and families in Class 1 for making me smile everyday with your messages and photographs.

Have a wonderful weekend.
