Oak Class have enjoyed exploring our ‘Once upon a time’ traditional tales topic this week. We have explored Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Bean Stalk and The Three Little Pigs. We listened to the story, acted out the story using lollipop characters in our dolls house, role played, and wrote captions for pictures too.
Our writing has ranged from labelling pictures, writing recipes in the home corner to writing speech bubbles for characters from our traditional tales. The children designed houses for the three little pigs and built them using straw, sticks and bricks as in the story.
In PE, we followed two story-based yoga sessions, stretching our bodies and having some time to calm our brains and bodies too. In Friday’s PE session, we moved our bodies in a variety of ways based on a range of animal movements.
We worked collaboratively to create a large collage, each taking responsibility for different parts of a castle, and celebrated this together on our wider curriculum display board. The children engaged well and persevered, chose appropriate pictures and colours from magazines to snip and stick.
World book day was a big success. The children looked brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed immersing themselves in stories. We shared our favourite books and reasons why within a carpet session and the children listened and engaged with each other.
Have a great weekend.
