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.

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.

Today in Reception, the children went outside to investigate and find signs of Autumn. The children first talked about the different colours they could see and then went and collected some of the leaves on the ground. We discussed how the leaves are different now that they have fallen.
