Traditional tales – The 3 little pigs, Goldilocks and the 3 bears and The 3 billy goats gruff

This week we have been:

Exploring traditional tales with 3 in the title. We read a story called  ‘Fairy-tale news’, it was lots of fun reading different traditional stories all in one book. Jack became a paper boy  so he could earn some money and he delivered newspapers to the Three bears, Little Red riding hood and to  Jack and the beanstalk. We have also read the Three Billy Goats gruff and Goldilocks and the three bears and have been singing songs about different traditional stories.

In phonics this week we have been learning:

  • ‘h’ – from his head to his feet, over his back. 
  • ‘sh’ – slither down the snake, from his head to his feet, over his back. ‘shhh says the horse to the hissing snake’.

In maths this week we have been re-visiting 2D shape. We played a game selecting the correct shape name, explored shape stencils and puzzles and had fun using the shape mats.

In Re this week we re-visited ‘Noah’s ark’. We used the boats and animals to retell the story together and painted our own rainbows. God puts rainbows in the sky to tell us that he loves us.

We have also continued planting seeds and making props and costumes for our class assembly.

Next week we will be:

  • Reading ‘The enormous turnip’, exploring size and shape.
  • Starting to learn about 3D shape.
  • Exploring forces using ‘The enormous turnip’
  • Talking about being kind and friendly towards others.

How you can help at home:

  • Continue name writing.
  • Continue recognising numbers the children can see around them.
  • Talk about 2D and 3D shapes you can see at home.
  • Share some of the traditional tales from above by reading stories or exploring them on YouTube.

Messages home:

  • As you are aware our class assembly is Friday 31st May, please bring in clothes and costumes when you have them – slips went home for those that need to bring something in.
  • Please can I remind you that although the weather is getting warmer the children still need to bring a coat to school as it can be chilly at times and you never know when it may rain.

Thank you for your support, Mrs Herne.
