This week we have started to learn the story of The Three Little Pigs. We have made our own story maps, a story mountain and started to put some actions with our storytelling to help us remember different parts of our traditional tale. We will be focusing on the openings and endings of stories over the next couple of weeks and it would be lovely if you can read some traditional tales at home and think about the language used by the authors.
I wonder if you could use the map or the videos of us performing our storytelling to practice at home?
This afternoon, Year 1 were given the task of building a house as a group that needed to withstand ‘the huff and the puff’ of a hairdryer! Engaging their team ant skills, they worked together to select from a variety of materials to create their own free standing houses. They used straws, paper, card, lollipop sticks, pipe-cleaners, masking tape and glue, to build some very imaginative houses. The final test was to see if they would stand up against the hairdryer! Most of the houses proved to be very sturdy and survived the test.
Next week we will be learning the story of the Three Little Pigs through T4W, discovering which of the pigs houses managed to survive against the wolf’s huffing and puffing.
