Listed below are some of the weekly activities and craft the children will be doing in the pre-school based around this book.  To continue your childs learning journey at home we have also listed some suggested activities and discussions for you to do with them as a family.

The focus for Term 4 is based around the book ' Clifford's Manners by Norman Bridwell

Norman Bridwell was the author and illustrator of numerous children's books, including the beloved Clifford series.  The delightful stories about a big red dog named Clifford and his friend Emily Elizabeth have sold over 126 million copies in 13 languages!
