This week in Literacy...

From Monday 5th October


We will be reading the book Elmer by David McKee


"Elmer the colourful patchwork elephant has been a childhood favourite since this first book was published in 1989. The subtle message is that it is OK to be different. Elmer’s story is full of vibrant colour and cheeky humour, and can be enjoyed by all the family."
