We have been learning a lot about traditional stories. Our main focus was Goldilocks and the three bears.
We listened to many versions of the story with different endings,learnt some new words including title,author, illustrations and joined in with repeated refrains.
We took turns in anticipating key events and.suggesting how the story might end. We learnt about the story setting, events and principal characters.
The children enjoyed turning our role play area into the three bears cottage and pretending to be the characters from the story using the available props and puppets.
They used their creative skills to paint the characters, make masks for role play and used resources to order, categorise and sequence.
We enjoyed exploring the texture of oats and then making porridge.
We tasted the porridge and most of us enjoyed it!
