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!
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.
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!
