The Elves and the Shoemaker

We have been inspired by our new topic of 'The Elves and the Shoemaker', finding out all about different shoes and creating patterns inside and outside. We've had some very tiny little notes to read from the fairies in our classroom and we've really helped them out by finding sounds outside and writing lists for them.  We've also had great fun playing in the role play shoe shop! We've been measuring feet, writing out price tags and counting out the right number of coins to pay. We also decided to measure some distances using our footsteps outside and discover what happened when we measured the same distance using tiny elf steps or great big giant steps!
