We have had a great term learning all about Traditional Tales. We firstly enjoyed Jack and the Beanstalk. We acted out the story and even planted our own magic beans - they are still growing but we hope there will not be a giant at the top! We then did Goldilocks and made our own porridge. We explored how we could make it more runny or more lumpy. We really enjoyed The Gingerbread Man and were brilliant at acting it out. We made and decorated our own Gingerbread Men and enjoyed eating them! For the Elves and the Shoemaker we explored which materials were best for making shoes.

We have loved so many 'Once upon a time' stories this term and have watched some Pantomimes of our favourites. Many of us dressed up as our favourite characters at the end of term. It was lots of fun!
