Today the children began their exploration of Traditional Tales. They began this topic with the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. The children really enjoyed this story and could easily recall key events, their order and repeated refrain used throughout. They then sequenced the picture of the key event whilst retelling it in their own words.
Continuing with their exploration of number the children focused on the number 5 day. Using a five frame they counted out five objects and then used 1:1 correspondence to check that they had counted out the correct number of objects. They maintained focus throughout this activity and took verbal feedback when they made mistakes.
Baskets & Biscuits
This week the children have been focusing on Little Red Riding Hood and made their own baskets and biscuits like Red Riding Hood took to her Grandma. The children decorated their baskets and assembled them. They then followed the instructions to weigh and mix the ingredients before rolling the dough and cutting out the shapes and baking them. The children were very impressed with their creations.
Chinese New Year
With Chinese New Year approaching on 25th January the children had an early celebration and tried some Chinese food. They tried noodles, spring rolls and prawn crackers!
