Christmas Trip to Whinlatter Forest

This week in reception we have been looking at items from the past. The children have enjoyed bringing in and talking about items that were precious to their family members in the past.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff. This week in Reception we received a letter from a troll! He warned use not to use the bridge in our garden. The children quickly set about looking for evidence that a troll was out and about and they closed the bridge with warning tape just in case........ The children went on to create trolls out of playdough, paint and other creative materials. On Wednesday the troll sent us a copy of a story that he actually doesn't like very much - The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have been busy learning the story and making up some actions to go with it.
