This week we have been exploring the topic of ‘Dragons’ using our core book ‘George and the dragon’.

We made dragon eggs!

Sarah and Kitty decided to make a nest for their eggs.

The children enjoyed playing with the wooden blocks and small world dragons and princesses. Outside the children used the large scale equipment to make dens to hide in, so they wouldn’t be captured by any dragons flying over. They also made castles and caves using the equipment…

Jack and the Beanstalk

Look at all our amazing Jack and the Beanstalk work!

IMG_7316IMG_7307IMG_7308IMG_7310

We learnt how to make the colour green, we painted curvy beanstalks to help Jack take back his gold. We  made character story props and wrote speech bubbles. We thought carefully about what each character might say and how they might say it.

In maths this week we have been investigating size. We had to work in teams to try and build the tallest/longest beanstalk. After much planning, preparation and measuring we worked out that Daniel and Earnest had made the longest beanstalk. Daniel said “We used the giant paper for the giant and that’s how we made the tallest beanstalk!”

Troll Week – The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff

This week we have been reading the traditional tale ‘The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff’. We made a new home for the trolls. We planned our ideas and then selected the resources we needed to create these beautiful bridges. Elizabeth and Sarah made a village with a slide and a bedroom for the troll family.

IMG_7157IMG_7161IMG_7154IMG_7159IMG_7191

We wrote our own traditional tales, we thought about character, setting the problem and the solution. Our stories are proudly displayed in our classroom. IMG_7284IMG_7282IMG_7286IMG_7283IMG_7292IMG_7287IMG_7289IMG_7281

We designed and made clothes for the trolls and ponies. We worked hard to measure the material and learnt how to join the fabric together so that it was secure.

We painted pictures of trolls.

Did you know that trolls smell really bad! Well, not anymore – thanks to Purple Class they now smell delightful.

We made perfume for the trolls…IMG_7139IMG_7140

Run, run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread Man!

IMG_6966 IMG_6977 IMG_6978 IMG_6979 IMG_6980 IMG_6981 IMG_6982 IMG_6983 IMG_6984 IMG_6985 IMG_6986 IMG_6989 IMG_6997

As part of our traditional tales topic, we have been reading the book ‘The Gingerbread Man’.  We have done lots of activities linked to the GBM and have enjoyed retelling the story to each other using our story maps.

Today we made some gingerbread dough.We can’t wait to see what they taste like.

Over the week we have been designing and building vehicles and bridges to help the GBM across the river.

In the outside area, we have built sturdy traps to help the fox capture the GBM.
