The Three Billy Goats Gruff
We started off this term with reading a story classic of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children thoroughly enjoyed re-telling the story using story telling language and actions, such as Once upon a time, Next, Suddenly, and Finally. Once the children were confident with the story, we innovated the story by adding new characters to replace the originals.
This term the children have been busy measuring height of the three different sized billy goats. The children were exposed to non-standard units of measure, such as unifix, Pom poms, counters and duplo to measure height. To measure height we always start at the bottom, make sure the measuring tools touch and we measure up!
We were very lucky to have a visit from two police officers, who took time out of their busy schedule to answer our questions and show us some exciting police objects. The children particularly enjoyed taking turns trying on police hats and a police vest!
To end a very busy fun term, out Christmas play was an amazing success!
The children worked so hard practicing their lines and rehearsing the songs, whilst having lots of fun in the process. Performing in front of an audience can be very nerve racking, but they were all stars!
