Shoes

This week, as part of our fairy tale topic,  McKee class have been focusing on "The Elves and the Shoemaker".

The week started with a surprise visit from some elves!

Whilst the children were inside, the mischievous elves, slipped into the outside area and emptied our wellie shelf.

Jessica went outside and found that our wellington boots were scattered all over the grass and perching on the fence. The children went outside to collect all the boots. They then sorted them back  into pairs looking closely at colour, size, shape, names and pattern to ensure they put the correct two back together on the shelf.

Later in the week the children had a go at designing and making paper shoes. They were free to make any style and colour they wished and we think you will agree they did a great job. They selected their own resources, cut their own shapes and tried the shoes on for size and fit!

Which pair would you choose?
