The Ginger Bread Man.
We have been looking at the story of The Ginger Bread Man. We have been very busy in our bakery area using our imaginations to create our own cookies. Outside we have been reading the story and were then able to use our memory to draw our own story road. We have also baked our own Ginger Bread biscuit which the children really enjoyed.
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
This week in Canary class we have been listened to the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and have used masks and language to re-enact it. We have used play dough to create our own trolls and have been building bridges outside for the Billy Goats to cross safely. Some children used chalks to draw a troll on the ground and shapes to make a troll face.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
This week we have been focusing on the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'.
We have been mark making in porridge oats, trying to write the letters of our name. Outside we have been using positional language placing a bear in, on, under and behind. Inside during active learning we have been painting, making porridge and playing with playdough.
The Three Little Pigs.
This week we have been focusing on the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'.
We have been building our own house of bricks and trying to 'Huff, puff and blow them down'.
Its Circus time.
Today in caterpillar music we went on a journey to the circus. We played lots of games, made our own tent using a parachute, sang on the microphone and even watched some circus tricks.
Ring games and nursery rhymes.
This week we have been singing nursery rhymes and playing ring games outside. Our favourite songs were The Farmers in his Den and Ring a ring a roses.
The Little Red Hen.
Today we had a visit from Mrs Parkinsons chicken Barbara, who played the role of "The Little Red Hen". The children asked lots of questions and were very excited to meet her.
P.E with Mr Scott
This week we have been practicing different ways to travel using lots of different equipment.
Our First Week in Canary Class.
This week we have been settling into our new environment. We have really enjoyed active learning in our outdoor area and playing inside with the play dough and in our role play kitchen.
