Fairy tale focus

This week we have continued our work on fairy tales, in response to the children's interests. We have written our own versions of Jack and the Beanstalk, performed plays (created stages, designed scenery, produced tickets and programmes), designed, made, tested and altered parachutes for Jack to aid his escape from the top of the beanstalk, worked out double the weight for items listed by the giant, talked about and compared sizes using a giant footprint, role played part of famous fairy tales, created bridges for the Three Billy Goats gruff and much more! As you can see, using the children's interests as the starting point for our learning makes it more exciting and therefore more engaging for the children, who then make better links in their learning and develop a better understanding.
