How you can help


We will be looking at the stories of Elmer and how he is different but the same as other elephants. Please read these stories with your child or watch his adventures on Youtube.


We will be starting to recognise letter sounds for letters m, a, s, d. You could help by forming these letters and words that start with them.


We will be learning to recognise different numbers up to 20 and matching numbers one to one and counting.

You can help by: 

  • Looking at different numbers in the environment
  • Count with your child
