Dd2 is half way through reception, seems to be progressing well using Jolly Phonics and would have to move to Read, Write, Inc.

LandS - I found a massive collection of "my animal kingdom" books (40 of them) in a charity shop for £5.

I would rather she read them (and so would she).

Educator - a boy in DD's class got "antarctica" today, will be interested to see how he gets on with it!!!

Well then, I know what your daughter will be reading be reading in the non fiction department from now on.

Your daughter can read and everybody in the school, including the head knows it. Obviously there's no need to slap the teacher on the nose. But she does have to see reason some how. Maybe you can suggest it to her in such a way that she thinks reading your second hand books is her idea.

Exciting subject for children isn't it?

Oh God!! It gets worse!!

She had a non fiction one on how to look after a pet dog (which she loved).

I was wondering what happened to the Papal Inquisition but apparently it seems to have resurfaced in the writing of books for children. Perhaps it would be kinder and more humane to just put them down gently.

I would not put them down gently, I would chuck the bloody books in the bin!!
