This week we carried on learning about traditional tales with another story that features the Big Bad Wolf – “Little Red Riding Hood”. This gave us the opportunity to use lots of red in our provision which we explored using our senses, marking making and also in role play.

The children wanted another “funky fingers” challenge this week, so we used sand timers to see how many items we could put into the egg box but using tweezers rather than fingers.  The children also made up their own challenges.

The weather allowed us to spend lots of time in the Nursery garden again. We finally got chance to plant the runner beans out and we are looking forward to seeing if they will grow up our pyramid.

Our big questions included learning some new positional language to see where the wolf was hiding, discussing our favourite parts of the story and also writing a list of the items in Red Riding Hood’s basket.

We realised that a few children confuse the wolf with a fox, so next week we will look at the differences between them when we meet a sly fox in “The Gingerbread Man”.
