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.

As part of World Nursery Rhyme Week the children in Reception will be learning a nursery rhyme each day and taking part in activities linking to that rhyme. This helps develop the children’s communication and language, literacy skills, maths and helps them to develop socially and emotionally.
The rhyme we focused on today was Bobby Shafto. The children enjoyed learning the song and coming up with actions to help us remember it .
The children then made telescopes to help them look out onto the sea and some children used boxes to make a boat!

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.”
We have been making pictures of fireworks.
