Our week began with some mysterious footprints being left in the classroom… we followed them through our outdoor classroom, through the hall and into the staffroom where we found a letter from The Little Red Hen. She explained that she was so tired after making her bread that she needed a rest and asked us to take her bread out of the oven. She also said what we could try her bread (as long as we left a slice for her)!
We worked in groups to lay our tables and then thoroughly enjoyed tasting the two different loaves of bread she had baked. We then wrote letters back to the Little Red Hen to thank her for the delicious bread.
The next day we arrived at school to discover another letter from the Little Red Hen. This time she explained that she was out in the fields planting more seeds and asked us to look after her baby chicks! We loved looking after her 3-week-old chicks – they were very noisy!
On Wednesday we made our own bread rolls and chose jam or honey to put on them. They tasted delicious!
In Art we worked collaboratively to create hen collages using lots of different resources.
In Maths we have been using our knowledge of 3D shapes to create repeating patterns.
At Forest School we continued our Maths work by making repeating patterns using natural resources.
