​Good morning Butterfly class, We read the story of 'The elves and the shoe maker' yesterday and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Don't forget to keep sending us the work you are all doing at home. We love seeing your minimash work too.

The Elves and the Shoemaker

This is a traditional version of the story.  How is it the same/different to yesterday’s version?

Today it is your job to guide the elves to the shoes that they need to make.  Use your pencil to draw a line to show the elves the way.


Why don’t you collect together some of your family’s shoes?  Who has the biggest shoes?  Who has the smallest?  How do the shoes do up; have they got laces or Velcro or a buckle?  What colours are they?  Why not set up your own shoe shop and sell the shoes back to your family?

Remember you need to match the shoes together so that they are in pairs – that is two shoes.

Older children: Can you count how many shoes you have in your shop?  Now can you count how many pairs there are?

Someone who mends and makes shoes is called a cobbler.  This rhyme is all about a cobbler.
