This week we have enjoyed listening to the story of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’.
We talked about the feelings of the characters in the story book; this linked with the children’s Personal, Social and Emotional development, as well as enhancing their learning about their own emotions.
The children enjoyed playing the story with small world resources.
We planted grass seed to watch it grow outdoors as this was the Billy Goats favourite food.
We learnt about the size language Big, Medium and Small, when playing with the different sized small world goats and other resources developing our mathematical language.
The children drew the characters from the Traditional story of the Three Billy Goats and some wrote their own stories whilst working in the outdoors writing area.
This supported their literacy, physical skills and imagination.
Recalling about the King’s Coronation
Children completed a mathematics task matching the number of jewels to the crown images with numbers.
The children shared how they celebrated the Coronation at home.
They saw the king on the throne and recalled landmarks of London that they saw when observing a map of the procession.
Children drew pictures of the King and wrote stories about the King. This developed their Understanding of the World, Literacy and Expressive Arts abilities, while also developing their storytelling.
