Spring Term 2 ‘Once Upon a Time’
Welcome to the magical world of fairy tales! Let’s find out more about our favourite stories, and discover some new ones. We will be looking at a range of different fairytales across the half term and exploring the different plots, characters and feelings within them. Each fairytale offers us new concepts to discover. We’ll look at different character types, and decide whether our favourite characters are ‘goodies’ or ‘baddies’. Did the big bad wolf really mean to blow the three little pigs houses down? Are wolves really big and bad? The little red hen will help us to understand how to make healthy life choices and understand where some of our food comes from. Jack and The Beanstalk will help us explore the mathematical vocabulary of tall, taller, tallest and short, shorter, shortest. Within The Three Billy Goats Gruff story we will be investigating concepts of floating and sinking when making rafts for the goats for an alternative ending. As you can see the possibilities within fairytales are endless!
