Teach Your Monster To Read
I'm not sure if you have seen "Teach Your Monster To Read". It is an award-winning series of games which helps children to master the key first stages of reading. It’s been created by the Usborne Foundation, led by Peter Usborne (of Usborne Publishing). The games develop children's speed and accuracy of letter recognition by taking them on a fantastic adventure through magical worlds where they meet island kings and collect letters to win prizes. Children adopt and customise a monster, who they guide through the learning process. I have now enrolled all of our Nursery children, so they are ready to have an explore!!

Talk about family pets … Compare family pets to mini beasts, animals in the zoo or on a farm. Can you keep an animal such as an elephant as a pet in your home? Why not? Would you like a spider as a pet? Discuss with different animals/minibeasts. Can you send me a photograph of your family pet or if you don’t have one, can you draw or send me photo of your favourite animal you would like as a family pet?
