Dear Santa...24 Nov 2017
The time is approaching fast for you know who to come and visit the children on Christmas Day, and this week in literacy preparations...
A special visitor has joined our class!
This morning we received a special parcel from a strange little man with curly shoes and a bell on his hat. When Mrs. Fletcher opened the parcel it was an elf who had come to visit us! Santa explained in a letter to the children they had to make sure the elf behaved and followed our school rules, and that if he didn't they were to report back to him so that Santa could send him back to Elf School! Unfortunately, later that morning when we all went out to play, the cheeky elf caused chaos! It seems the elf can't be left for long on his own!
Next week the children have said they will be writing to Santa to let him know what the elf has been up to. (Let's hope he doesn't do anything else over the weekend in class....)
The children did think however, that if the elf learnt by his mistakes he would have the superpower of learning by his mistakes.
So Mrs. Fletcher took a photo of the elf and is now on our growth mindset display waiting to get his superpower!
Thank you very much!17 Nov 2017
