The Ladybirds have enjoyed the story of the Ugly Duckling this week. We have painted our own pictures to tell the story. We mixed our own colours and put captions with our paintings. We have also made our own swans and ducklings using shapes and paper plates.
We really enjoyed watching the story of the Ugly Duckling that was performed by a Theatre company who came to school. This was a fantastic way to see the story.
In our number work we have been counting ducklings to make our own number stories.
This week our story has been Jack and the Beanstalk. We have explored the story in many exciting ways. We have painted pictures to tell the story and we have acted out the story together. In our creative activities we have made our own pictures of the beanstalk and the castle using different kinds of paper. In our numeracy activities we have been measuring objects around the classroom and have made a very tall beanstalk.
The ladybirds have enjoyed reading the stories of The Smartest Giant in Town and The Gruffalo.
We have acted out the stories with toys and puppets and found out about how the giant helped the different animals. In our number work we have counted collections of shells, sticks and even socks for the giant. We have used the giant's socks to help us explore taking away and finding one less.
