Traditional Tales

Reception class has really enjoyed their topic on Traditional Tales. The children particularly enjoyed Little Red Riding Hood, The Gingerbread Man and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

Children practised their cooking and baking skills by making porridge for Little Red Riding Hood and making their own Gingerbread Men.

Children were excitedly singing “Run! Run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man!” during this baking activity. The children enjoyed creating their own “wanted” posters for the missing Gingerbread Man, and had lots of fun trying to locate him. The children also enjoyed performing trip trapping movements just as the goats did in The Three Billy Goats Gruff. During carpet time discussions, children demonstrated a good understanding of the difference in size and weight of the three billy goats gruff.
