Week Beginning Mon 10th May

Week Beginning Monday 10th May 2021

This term we are continuing with our theme of Traditional Stories and we have been looking at the stories of Jack and the Beanstalk and The Little Red Hen. We are getting very good at retelling the story of The Little Red Hen and have been thinking about how we can be helpful both at home and at nursery. We thought the cat, the dog and the mouse were very lazy! 


Here's the story we have been reading. Listen together with your child - they will love telling you all about it!

Talking Together

Poor little red hen! Those other animals were so lazy! Especially in the second story! Which story did you enjoy the most? Did you notice any differences between the two? Was there a duck in the second story? Did the hen bake bread in both stories? That’s interesting! Lots of traditional stories are retold in different ways - you might notice that with other stories.

  • What do you think about the Little Red Hen eating the bread all by herself at the end?
  • And what do you think about the other animals in the story?
  • Do you think they were being fair? I think if I could write a new ending to the story I would give them a chance to say sorry and put right what they had done! What do you think?
  • It's important to be fair and to share the work with our family and friends. Can you think of some ways that you can share? 


Did you know that bread and cake are both made from wheat that grows in the field? The little red hen took the wheat to the mill where it is ground into flour. Have you ever been to visit a mill?

Our Letter Sound of the Week is




Let's go on a sound hunt!

Go on a hunt around your house for different things beginning with the p sound.  How many things can you find? Practise listening to and saying the p sound in each word - p, pan. Where can you hear the p sound in each word?

Here's a video from CBeebies. Evie and Dodge the Dog are looking for things beginning with p too. They might give you some more ideas!
