The Gingerbread Man ran away this week! We looked everywhere but couldn't find him anywhere. We think that the naughty Fox may have eaten him! We decided we should make some Gingerbread men. We kept a very close eye on them until we took them home to eat. They were delicious!
This week it was the Three Little Pigs that needed our help. The Big Bad Wolf kept blowing down their houses. They wanted us to build them a new house. We made them houses from sticks, straw and bricks. We wanted to find out what the best material for their new house would be. We didn't want the Big Bad Wolf to blow it down again. We tested different materials by blowing them with a hair drier. We found that the straw was blown right away but the bricks didn't even move so we thought that bricks would be best for their new house.
On Monday morning we discovered that someone had stolen Ms Loosley's porridge. We thought it might have been Goldilocks. We heard the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We made some more porridge and added honey and raisins. It was delicious!
We also made the baby bear a new chair and a new bed.
After helping Humpty last week the Three Billy Goats Gruff wanted our help. They wanted to get across the bridge to eat the nice green grass but the mean troll who live under the bridge won't let them cross. We came up with lots of ideas including flying over the bridge in a plane, surfing across the river and building the goats a boat. We made our own bridges for the goats too.
Welcome back. We hope you had a lovely half term.
This term our topic is Stories and Rhyme. We had a visit from Humpty Dumpty on Tuesday. He needed the children to help him as he keeps falling of the wall and hurting himself. The children had lots of good advice for him such as to sit still on the wall, not to jump, or be thrown. They thought that one of the best places to keep him might be in the freezer! They thought he wouldn't get broken in there. We tested out their idea and put an egg in the freezer over night but sadly we found it cracked and the egg inside froze!
We also started to write some amazing stories about Humpty Dumpty. Have a look at our pictures.
