Excuses, excuses!

We are discussing The Ox and The House in stages in class - the story of written language. This article was so well timed. We learnt how Elizabeth 1st was a scholar in her own right but her written language was so terribly messy - she was Queen and it was the job. of everyone else to understand what she had written! The children loved this! In an attempt to counteract such a regal example (!), we have also looked at the beauty of some of medieval manuscripts and are beginning our own attempts at calligraphy.

The children are marvelling at how just 26 letters can produce all they see, in English, in books, magazines, comics, instructions, internet articles, posters, directions, libraries, CD covers - the list is endless
