The Big Bad Wolf!
Our story of the week is Little Red Riding Hood. The children enjoyed the story of the Enormous Turnip so much that we have chosen another traditional tale to base our literacy activities around. This week we have read the story, emphasizing the repetitive text and encouraging the children to join in.
In our fine motor skills activities we practised drawing circles and different types of lines and then used the lines and circles to draw the characters and features of the setting of the Red Riding Hood story.
Next week we will read Mr Wolf’s Pancakes by Jan Fearnley and then return to Little Red Riding Hood the following week.
We have enjoyed taking advantage of the beautiful, warm early Spring sunshine this week and have spent long periods of the day outdoors. The children have enjoyed using our new Mud Kitchen area and we have also opened up our Wood Workshop for the first time this year.
On Friday the digger arrived and work has started on clearing the garden ready for our long-awaited turf. Watch out for next week’s photos!
