Traditional Tales

In Reception this half term we have been exploring traditional tales. The children have really enjoyed learning about The Three Little Pigs this week after finding sticks and straw in a taped off area of the playground. Miss Compton’s class even found wolf footprints heading towards their classroom door! The children have enjoyed creating pig masks to help with learning and retelling the story.

Colour Hunt Cafe

Welcome to our Early Years Colour Hunt Cafe!
We hope you enjoy listening to the story ‘We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt’ read by Miss Wright. You can then watch some videos for activities that you might like to try this afternoon or over the weekend.
Miss Compton is showing you a colour wheel activity. You will need: access to colourful objects.
Miss Smart is showing you a journey stick activity. You will need: access to the outdoors to find natural materials, a stick and some tape.
Miss Butcher is showing you how to thread leaves to make a leaf crown/belt/necklace. You will need: access to leaves, string and a hole punch or pencil to poke holes in leaves.
Remember to wash your hands after you have been outside and to return the natural objects back to their homes in nature when you are finished with them.
We look forward to seeing photos of your creations!

We’re going hunting!

The children in Reception have been busy innovating the popular story ‘we’re going on a bear hunt’ this week. We experimented with changing the settings to new ones, thinking of ways to describe them. Some children decided to keep the original settings and change the character that they were hunting for, from dragons, to tigers to snails! The children had a go at recording the journeys within their stories on story maps.
