Summer 1 in Reception 2024

This half term our topic has been ‘Once Upon a Time.’ We have been reading lots of traditional tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have also read some not so traditional versions of these stories such as ‘Blow your nose, Big Bad Wolf’ and ‘The Great Fairy tale Disaster.’

Little Red Riding Hood

We had a go at acting out the story with props. We made a wanted poster for the wolf from the story and discussed his features and characteristics. We also had the opportunity to retell the story with puppets in the tuff tray.


The Three Little Pigs

We shared the story as a class and have also read different versions such as ‘The three little wolves and the big bad pig.’ As a class we discussed the sequence of the story. We then created a story map to show what happened at the beginning, middle and end. We tried to make our own houses from bricks, straw and sticks like the pigs did!

Jack and the Beanstalk.

Using our cutting skills, we cut out a spiral pattern to make our own beanstalks. Some of us made ‘Jack’ to put on the beanstalk and added leaves. At the end of the week, we planted our own magic bean! We are waiting patiently to see if they will grow.

Goldilocks and the 3 bears

In class, we had a go at making and trying porridge like Goldilocks. Some of us had raisins or honey with our porridge and we decided it was ‘just right!’
