Will you read me a story?
We'll be using a range of language linked to our favourite stories this half term as we read a variety of traditional tales. We'll be taking on the role of the Three Little Pigs and the Big, Bad Wolf at our new small world table and we will use our growing knowledge of the story to create and label story maps. We will explore size as we read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and we will consider good hygiene as we make our own porridge. We will think carefully in our workshop as we create bridges for the water tray - will the Three Billy Goat's be able to cross safely?
After reading the story ‘Owl Babies’ we were keen to find out more about nocturnal animals. We were introduced to non-fiction books and were fascinated to find out that some owls live in the snow and some owls live in the desert. We experimented with new tools and equipment in our workshop area, using split pins to create bats with wings that move.
Are we there yet?
Following our keen interest in transport, this half term we will be looking at different types of vehicles! As part of this we will explore road safety and the importance of a lollipop person, zebra crossing and pelican crossing. We will investigate floating and sinking in our water tray as we create our very own boats in the workshop area and we are very excited to set up a train station role play area too!
