Welcome back to our class blog. This week we have been busy learning about Little Red Riding Hood. We have explored the text and looked at the openers that every traditional take starts with. Ask your child if they can tell you?
We also undertook a series of challenges in continuous provision. The first one being size ordering clogs that Grandma from the story might have worn. We learned about pairs, ordered from biggest to smallest and smallest to biggest. A great fun start to the week.
We have also been exploring media and mixing them up to add different textures to our original art work. We tore paper to create the background of the wood, used art pastels to create the wolf and Red Riding Hood and then added further detail using felt, wood and other bits and pieces. We have now displayed these on our wall in the classroom so please come in and take a look
We have also been busy describing the characters from the story. We talked about the characters and how they looked, felt and what they did. We created our own vision map to show our findings.
We took advantage of the snow and we brought it inside to explore it. We had lots of descriptive language as a result. We described the snow as tingly, freezing, slushy, wet, cold and a lovely descriptive word from Liam - Frosty icicles stuck together.
We also looked at the different tracks that we could see on the floor. We found these ones. Do you think you might know which animal they belong to?
We have also been busy with another continuous provision challenge. We had to use tongs to collect jewels of different sizes and shapes and see how many we could collect in less than a minute. Tricky but with a little bit of perseverance we completed the challenge
We hope that you have a lovely weekend and we will see you next Monday. Next weeks text of the week is the Gingerbread Man and we have a wonderful weeks worth of learning planned for you all.
See you all on Monday
