‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term A

Week 1


The role-play area has ben changed into a café are with different roles for the children to take on.  Two chefs, a waitress/waiter and some customers.  The adults supported the children to carry out the tasks and understand the roles, developing their language and communication skills.

Week 2

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

The children enjoyed this familiar traditional tale and loved joining in with the story, remembering the repeated refrains.  They used masks to re-enact the story using different voices for each character.

They all tasted porridge and recorded if they liked it or not using a pictogram in small groups. Most of the children had a try and liked it, even wanting seconds.

Week 3

Chinese New Year

The cafe area was changed to a Chinese restaurant this week.  The children tasted noodles and prawn crackers and recorded their likes and dislikes.

They developed their scissor control making a Chinese lanterns and mark-making to make a dancing dragon.

We all learnt a new Chinese Ney Year song.
