How can we bring traditional tales to life?

How can we bring traditional tales to life?


This half term, we will be immersing ourselves in the wonderful traditional tales that we all know and love including Little Red Riding Hood & Hansel and Gretel! We will learn these traditional tales through story telling, role play and story writing. In Geography, we will get into role as Little Red Riding Hood and take a walk through the woods, using a journey stick to show our route. We will also consider how we can make maps and use symbols to show the key features and landmarks. Our Geography will link to ICT as we use technology and Bee-Bots to program and follow routes. Finally in D&T, we will use different materials to make our own hand puppets. We cannot wait to use these and bring traditional tales to life!

Journey Sticks


Thank you to those of you who were able to join us in a hunt around the school grounds making journey sticks. Our great works are a wonderful opportunity for your children to share their learning and for you to celebrate their progress. We hope you enjoyed making journey sticks!

Highlight of the Week - 3rd February 2020


For story time on Friday, Mrs Hurst came to the library with us and read a story! She read the Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, as we have been writing about the Three Little Pigs in Year 1 this week! We loved this version of the Three Little Pigs because it was very different and funny!

This week, we have been getting into role as Little Red Riding Hood and talking a walk through the woods. Part of our Geography learning was to make our own journey sticks to show our route and we used this to create our own maps!

Highlight of the Week - 20th January 2020


This week, Owl Class gave everyone a real treat when they brought the story of Little Red Riding Hood to life in their class assembly! There was acting, singing, dancing and plenty of smiles from our little performers! It was wonderful to see such a great turnout of our families and we thank them for their support.

Together, we grow our love for learning.
