This half term our topic has been ‘Once Upon a Time.’ We have been reading lots of traditional tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have also read some not so traditional versions of these stories such as ‘Blow your nose, Big Bad Wolf’ and ‘The Great Fairy tale Disaster.’
The first story we read was Jack and the Beanstalk. We learnt how to create a story map and then had a go at making our own. Using our cutting skills, we cut out a spiral pattern to make our own beanstalks. Some of us made ‘Jack’ to put on the beanstalk and added leaves. At the end of the week, we planted our own magic bean! We are waiting patiently to see if they will grow.
In class, we had a go at making and trying porridge like Goldilocks. Some of us had raisins or honey with our porridge and we decided it was ‘just right!’
We have had a go at making stick puppets and enjoyed retelling the story of the Three Little Pigs using our puppet theatre. We also had a go at making houses for the pigs using straw, sticks and blocks.
