Something very exciting happened in Hedgehogs today! Miss Blassberg's gingerbread man that she was going to eat after her lunch disappeared! We set off to hunt for him and found a trail of flour and some clues left by a horse, a cow and a suspicious looking fox. At the end of the trail we discovered a story map which told us the fate of the gingerbread man.
We will be learning this story off by heart over the next two weeks and will be using it to help us create our own. Please take a look at the story map below and see if your child can tell you the story and teach you the actions!
This week we read the story 'Pumpkin Soup' by Helen Cooper and then wrote recipes and made our own soup! The children helped to chop the ingredients and most of them tasted it at the end, even if it was a new food which we were very proud of.
We have also been learning about the festival of Diwali and thinking about the similarities and differences to festivals or special days that each of us celebrate. The children made their own Diya lamps which they will decorate next week.
We had a fantastic time at our Magical Tea Party. In the morning we played party games in the hall and decorated biscuits and then in the afternoon we did some exciting Halloween crafts in the Badger and Hedgehog classrooms.
