We have been reading the story of The Little Red Hen and we thought the animals on the farm were very unkind to the hen. We all then helped Mrs Donno to bake some delicious bread and the staff in the kitchen helped us to bake it. We are all kind and helpful in our school!

We went for an Autumn walk around our school grounds. We saw some of our hens and one looked just like The Little Red Hen! Could you go for a walk at home and see what things you can find on the ground that have fallen from the trees? You could bring some of the things you find to Nursery.

This week, we are reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We are using props, pictures and puppets to re-tell the story. If you have this story at home, you could ask your child to re-tell the story by looking at the pictures. Can they use different voices for the each character?
