Since returning from the Christmas break, Reception have been reading different versions of the story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, as part of their new topic- Traditional Tales.
During this time, the children have written their own versions of the story in various different forms and have also written ‘Wanted’ posters to help find Goldilocks. They have created letters to say sorry to the three bears from Goldilocks and have made puppets, props and masks. They have made the three bears’ cottage from a range of large and small construction and have enjoyed role playing the story in the bears’ cottage in the outdoor area.
On Wednesday, the children were shocked to find that a crime had been committed! Someone had broken into the cottage, smashed up Baby Bear’s chair and made a real mess. The cottage was taped off as a crime scene! Luckily, we had lots of police detectives in the class, who were very keen to track down the suspect. Unfortunately, even though the police used all of their available resources, the criminal remains at large!
During part of our RE lesson this week, the children were introduced to their new topic, Sacramental People. The children thought about how God is all around us and within us and that he loves everyone. The children then thought about all the people who care for them at home and discussed how God is like those special loved ones, because like them, he cares for us too.
The class have enjoyed being taught gymnastics by Mr Dugan, the PE teacher from Dame Alice Owen School, for the past two Fridays. This is set to continue for the rest of this term.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer
