Reception have continued to focus on the story, ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ this week. On Monday, they worked together as a class and correctly sequenced the whole story and they also had fun building their own cottages for the bears to live in.
On Tuesday morning, the Reception children were astonished to find that their fairy tale cottage had been broken into and generally wrecked!
Porridge had been spilt everywhere, Baby Bear’s chair broken and the bears’ beds had been messed up. Mrs Theo immediately rang the police, and they told her to preserve the crime scene with some special tape. They also told her that they needed the help of the children to search for clues and gather evidence. The class then made their own police badges and despite the terrible weather they all went outside, as they were determined to track down the intruder.
As the week progressed, the children were no closer to catching the criminal and so after a class discussion, they decided to try and trap the criminal. The class made security cameras, wanted posters and designed and made traps!
After all their efforts, sadly, the case is as yet unsolved. If you have any information, please get in contact with one of the Reception police officers.
Next week, the children will be focussing on the story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’.
Wishing you a lovely weekend,
Mrs Theo and Mrs gymer
