This week we used two stories to inspire our work. We started the week with Thinking of words to describe the wolf in “Little Red Riding Hood”. The children came up with fantastic language such as vicious and fierce and we then learned the word sly which we think suited him very well.
Lots of our provision was red this week and we found out that even pink is a shade of red.
We looked at another story by Jan Fearnley “Mr Wolf and the enormous turnip” where a Prince had been turned into a frog. He needed to be kissed by a Princess to unbreak the spell which the children found most amusing as the book repeatedly used the words “kissy, kissy, kiss,kiss” which they loved joining in with! The children were able to use the CD player to listen to the story on their own.
This week we took up Mr Grayson and Mr Haslam’s challenge to grow long, fat and weird carrots. We have planted some seeds in pots but are keeping them inside at the moment in case it is still a bit frosty. We filled some tyres with compost so they are ready and will plant them out as soon as possible.
We want to wish all our Nursery Mums a very happy Mother’s Day. We hope you like the secret cards we made for you!
