As the children have been learning all about the ‘Little Red Hen’ they made bread just like she did in the story. The children looked at wheat sheafs and then used the ingredients to make bread rolls.
The children cam up with ways to describe the dough such as: sticky, soft, gooey, smooth and they said you need to have muscles to be able to mix it!
We then had to wait for the bread to grow bigger before we could put it in the oven. We rolled it into bread rolls and then cooked it in the oven.

Today reception received a special delivery. The children guessed who it could be off by looking at the stamp. One pupil said there is a reindeer. the children then spoke in their talking partners where we might find reindeers. Th children decided that the gift could be from Father Christmas.
Inside the box was an Elf and a letter to the children. the children then decided on a name for the elf – Arthur. We also received a special video of the reindeers delivering the advent calendar.
This pupil began to read the book ‘The Little Red Hen.’ She spoke about the different characters and said that the hen was picking seeds. She then went on to say how the seeds would need water to grow, she was being a Thinkadocis by making links and having her own ideas.
