Fantasy and Adventure in Little Elms

Our topic for the second half of Summer Term in Little Elms is 'Fantasy and Adventure'. This week on our adventure, we will be introducing a different fairytale each day.

We will begin with the Three Little Pigs. In cooking we are making pig shaped bread rolls and we will be exploring the story by building houses out of straw, sticks and bricks. Hopefully the boys will have fun huffing and puffing the houses down! 

Next we will visit Little Red Riding Hood. The boys will explore colours and how they can be blended to create a painting of Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf in the deep dark woods. We also set out a story sack that allows the boys to take on different roles in the story.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff will be introduced in our STEM afternoons. I will set out ‘rivers’ all over the classroom and the boys will need to make different bridges to get across without getting eaten by the Troll. Our independent challenges will also be geared around fairytales, with the boys making frogs and crowns.There will also be lots of other activities that tie in all seven areas of learning.

In Little Elms we are also beginning to blend sounds. The boys are enjoying their reading books and these activities are a great way to keep them interested in this huge next step; to submerge them in books.
