This week we have been focusing on another traditional tale; The Three Little Pigs. We have had a fantastic time learning the story through listening to different versions, drawing a story map and retelling it through small world scenarios using puppets and other resources such as masks, mini bricks, sticks and hay to try and build the houses. We have been learning the repeated refrains in the story such as: “I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house down!” and “Not by the hair on my chinny chinny chin; I will not let you in!” We got in to role brilliantly and saw some quite scary wolves appearing in Little Cypress!
We also had great fun playing with the farm small world, sorting the animals such as pigs, cows, horses, sheep, goats, ducks and chickens in to separate fields, stables and ponds.
The weather has got increasingly brighter as the week has gone on and we are looking forward to a week of Jubilee celebrations next week.
Have a wonderful weekend!
