Once upon a time


This half term we are planning to learn through a range of traditional and fairy tales. 

Each week we will focus on a different tale as follows:


Week 1. 

The Gingerbread Man

This week we will be re-enacting the story and making our own gingerbread. 


Week 2. 

The Little Red Hen

This week we are going to be exploring friendship and what it means to be a good friend. We will be thinking particularly about sharing and how we can treat each other fairly. We will also be baking our own bread, just like the little red hen.


Week 3. 

Red Riding Hood

This week we will think about following instructions to stay safe. 

We will also be learning more about forests and the creatures and plants that live there. 


Week 4. 


The Three Little Pigs

This week we will be making our own constructions, just like the three little pigs. 


Week 5. 


Jack and the Beanstalk

This week we are going to be thinking about how things grow and attempting to sprout our own beanstalks.


Week 6. 


In the final week we will think about all the tales we have heard and consider which characters are our favourites and why. There will be opportunities to dress up and spend time being our favourite characters too when we have a fairy tale tea party.
