Learning through stories

From observing the children's interest in building structures both inside and out, alongside watching their friendships form in the process, I searched for an appropraite text to share with the class.

 

What We'll Build, is a beautiful book which explores relationships, the present and future, feelings the children may wish to explore further; as well as celebating the endless potential each child holds.

 

Please share the following videos with your child, which explore the author and his reasons for writing his beautiful book.

After dismantling the nativity scene and leaving blocks behind in an empty space, the children instantly began to play, making up their own story.  The blocks were arranged into beds of different sizes due to the limited amount of blocks.    When asked if they would extra props they asked for three bears and our new role area was decided upon.

Please listen to the Golilocks and the Threee Bears story at home and ask them about playing in this area.

We acted out the story of Oliver's Vegetables

We diced, sliced, grated and peeled vegetables for our soup, we really enjoyed learning these new skills.

Our Homemade Vegetable Soup was Delicious!

We dug up our home grown potatoes from our compost bin.  We also brought in potatoes from home, to see if we could find the heaviest and lightest potatoes in Liverpool.                        Once we had finished with them, we peeled and sliced them to make real homemade chips.  they were delicious!

We made real chips with our home grown potatoes

As part of our topic about keeping healthy, the children learnt about the importance of their skeleton. They listened to the Funnybones story and danced along to the skeleton dance song. The children also met our class skeleton and drew their own.  Why not listen to the story again with your child and have a little dance too?
