The Three Billy Goats
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. Our new story included a strong, brave Elsa and a magical blue Geanie.
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 surprise 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!
