What we are learning
Little Red Riding Hood
For the next two weeks we will be learning all about the story of Little Red Riding Hood. The children will be taking part in lots of activities to support their learning. We will be retelling the story, with a focus on how we can make Grandma feel better. The children will use the small world area and the different resources to retell Little Red Riding Hood using vocabulary from the story. We will taking a look at healthy eating and lifestyle as well as role playing Doctors and Nurses. To strengthen our fingers we are going to be using playdough to make logs by rolling and then just like the woodcutter in the story we are going to use knifes to cut slices of wood.
The children are also going to be making and decorating cakes looking at how to weigh and mix the different ingredients. They will also discuss what happens to the cake mixture when it begins to cook in the oven. The children will listen and follow instructions and learn about how to keep safe when cooking as well as ensuring that they wash their hands to keep away germs.
