We had a lovely visit to Waterstones and the Florists! At Waterstones, Fiona read us two stories and then we all chose a book using our World Book Day Tokens. We also visited Make My Day Flowers to find out about a florist shop so that we could create our own role play shop back at school.
We have loved learning the stories 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. Take a look at the photos to see the learning and play we have done linked to these texts.
Following on from 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' we have innovated the story to make our own called 'We're Going on an Egg Hunt'. Take a look at the story map and see if you can tell the story!
We all enjoyed finding our about Chinese New Year, through tasting noodles, hearing the story, ordering numbers and making dragons.
We all came back from Christmas full of excitement to start our new topic 'Once Upon a Time'. We have begun by looking at 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' and have loved story mapping and verbalising the story. Our classroom has been transformed with areas from the story to explore and discover, giving us the opportunity to develop our understanding of the text and work on our next steps in our learning. Using the Bear Hunt as our inspiration, we have decided to innovate the story, driven by the children's ideas using the familiar language patterns. Watch this space to see what we create!
