Since half term we have been working on the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. We have worked really hard at telling the story orally using actions. This week the class worked together to create a story map. See if your child can use the story map to help them tell you the story of 'The Three Little Pigs', ask them to show you the actions they've learnt as well. Here is a copy of the story that we have used:

 

Once upon a time, early one morning, there was a mother pig who decided that it was time for her three little pigs to leave home. The first little pig built a house of straw. The second little pig built a house of sticks. The third little pig built a house of bricks.

Unfortunately, along came a big bad wolf to the house of straw. 'Little pig, little pig, let me come in'.

'Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin, I will NOT let you in.'

So, the wolf huffed and he puffed and he huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down.

The first little pig ran and he ran and he ran, all the way to his brother's house. Then the wolf came to the house of sticks. 'Little pig, little pig, let me come in'.
'Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin, I will NOT let you in.'

So, the wolf huffed and he puffed and he huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down.
The two little pigs ran and they ran and they ran, all the way to their brother's house. Next, the wolf came to the house of bricks.
'Little pig, little pig, let me come in'.

'Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin, I will NOT let you in.'

So, the wolf huffed and he puffed and he huffed and he puffed but he could not blow the house down. The wolf was cross, so he climbed onto the roof and started to come down the chimney. But, the three little pigs lit a fire and put on a big pot of water to boil. The wolf fell straight into the hot water and burnt his tail - ARRHHH!

Finally, the wolf went out of the house. He ran and he ran and he ran and he ran and was never seen again.

 

Here is a copy of our story map.

We have discussed different types of houses and what houses are made out of. The children had lots of fun one day creating their own houses with a partner. Thank you to everyone who sent in their recycling for this. Later in the day the Big Bad Wolf came along (a hairdryer) to try to blow the houses down. On the whole, the children built very sturdy houses.

 

Here are some photos of the children busy junk modelling:

Next week we are going to be having a go at telling our own versions of The Three Little Pigs. We will also be working on our Christmas celebration.

 

In Phonics, we've been learning our phase 2 sounds, we will carry on with these up to Christmas.

 

Thank you for visiting our page, come back soon!

Throughout the year in Saplings there are occasions when we offer the children small amounts of a variety of foods to taste, to fit in with our current topic. We are aware of dietary requirements already supplied, should there be any changes, please inform the school office and we will take note of this when providing food to your child.
