This group of pupils worked together to build a tower. When I asked them what it was one of the pupils replied “It’s a tower for Little Red Riding Hood.”
PSED – 30-50/40-60m-
Today some of the children in reception designed a map to help Little Red Riding Hood find her Grandmas house. We worked together to think of things she might come across on her journey and then drew them on our map. We then talked about how she would get there.
#RS said “She needs to go over the bridge.”
#RE said “She can’t swim in the water so she will have to go around it.”
Reception have had lots of fun today learning how to make bread. The children learned how the dough has to rest and get bigger before they can knead and shape it. The children first washed their hands before starting and then used the palms of their hands to stretch, roll and manipulate the dough. Some of the children were surprised how sticky the dough was! The children then made bread rolls, plaited the bread and created a small loaf which was to be cooked and served to the children in school this week.
