This week we found out the similarities between the fox in “The Gingerbread Man” and the “Big Bad Wolf” from our last two stories. The children soon picked up that they were both hungry and not very nice characters and we certainly wouldn’t like to meet them!
We had fun making a tally chart of the parts of a gingerbread biscuit that we would eat first. The head was clearly the most popular although we did have a few variations!
We had lots of different Gingerbread Man themed activities for the children to choose and they clearly know the story very well now as lots of language from the story was heard around the Nursery all week.
We made some repeating patterns for the Gingerbread Man’s buttons and found out that it was a pattern that goes on and on and on…which the children found very amusing!
This week we loved the sunshine again. We made sure we were all safe from the sun by wearing hats and finding shade from our trees. The children worked out that the sun was moving as we had to keep moving things whenever the shade moved!
Next week we are finishing the half term with activities based on weddings as we are quite excited about the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
