Story of the week (29.1.18/5.2.18)

This week we will be reading the traditional tale 'Little Red Riding Hood'. We will be exploring other familiar traditional tales such as 'Three Little Pigs' and 'Jack and the Beanstalk' as well. The children will be encouraged to act out these stories as well as create their own versions.

Story of the week (22.1.19)

'Can't You Sleep Little Bear' by Martin Waddell

 

We have had a lovely time sharing this story and talking about our own fears. The children changed the characters to robins, hedgehogs and mice and thought about the different things these creatures might be afraid of. Have a go at looking for some woodland creatures while you are out and about!

Story of the week (8.1.18)

This week we have been reading, retelling and acting out 'The Gruffalo' by Julia Donaldson. Lots of the children are already familiar with this story and really enjoyed being able to recall it word for word by themselves. We had a great time changing the Gruffalo character to our own imaginary beasts.
