Traditional Tales - October 2022
This half term, Reception's topic has been Traditional Tales. They learnt about 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'The Gingerbread Man' in detail and read lots of other stories too. To celebrate the end of the topic the children took part in a Traditional Tales Ball. They all came to school dressed as their favourite character and participated in lots of activities. They enjoyed planting seeds for Jack and the Beanstalk, building houses that could not be blown down by the wolf and experimenting to understand why the gingerbread man could not cross the river. It was a fabulous day!
