Inspired by our designer from our Whole School Big Write, Morag Myerscough, we chose David as our Author of the Month. The children, through discussions in assembly, made the connection from the use of colours and line in the Elmer books to Morag's designs. During the assembly, we discussed how David has written iconic series such as Mr Benn and Elmer. We focused on Elmer due to its moral messages about celebrating difference and learning to appreciate oneself. We ended the assembly by listening to one of our Year 1 50 Recommended Reads - Elmer.
