Much of our literacy work in Purple class this term will be focussed upon our class reading book of Dear Zoo. This is a wonderful interactive story that helps the children to identify different animals and colours, as well as the sounds that each animal in the story makes. All of the children have written letters to the zoo. Purple class has its very own post-box! The children took it in turns to post their letters, and then we sat back to enjoy and participate in the Dear Zoo story. The pop-up animals in the book always gain a wonderful response from the children. Each class member was given a page to open, and we shared with our class friends the sounds that our own animals make.
