The Gingerbread Man
This term in Reception we have been reading the story of The Gingerbread Man. The children were very surprised to receive a letter telling them that the Gingerbread Man had run away and was hiding. Throughout that week we searched for him. On the Friday he left us a set of clues to help find him and excitedly we followed the clues until we discovered him…. hiding in our phonics aprons! The following week we baked our own Gingerbread men… do you like them?
The children have been learning to continue or create a repeating pattern using different resources. See if you can guess what will come next in each pattern.
Our topic this half term is ‘The Toybox’. We have been looking at old and new toys and how to look after them. We have also been writing about our favourite toys and painting them too.
At the start of the term we all settled into our new classes and discovered all the exciting opportunities and resources that our new classrooms, creative areas and outside areas offer us. We have now made new friends, started to get to know our teachers and most of all we have been enjoying our learning.
