This week, we have continued our work on The Little Red Hen! We have been writing instructions, have continued to make our own salt dough and have completed lots of independent writing about the book’s characters and also our own class chicks – who are growing daily!
We have also been thinking about seasons and months of the year. During Thursday afternoon, we learned all about Barnaby Bear’s recent holiday to Paris. He showed us his souvenirs and also, very kindly, brought some French foods for us all to taste! We tried baguette, croissant, brioche, Brie and Gruyere! We were all fantastic at trying new things – especially the French cheeses!
Next week, our work will focus on the story of The Gingerbread Man, including making pictograms, designing/labelling our own gingerbread men and writing a character description of the fox! We will, of course, be doing some baking too! This will follow the week after!
Homework for this week – Money homework can be found in Homework folders and please continue with your child’s usual reading – both home and reading challenge.
