Once Upon A Time at Merry Hill

This week we have been really enjoying traditional tales; The Three Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk! Panthers and Lions have been exploring the traditional tales in a variety of ways- reading, writing, acting, drawing and – best of all- sharing their learning on our online learning platform, Seesaw! If you’d like to see videos of the children acting out Jack and the Beanstalk, log into Seesaw this week. The children were using lots of actions:

How You Can Help At Home:

Interview other people in your family, to ask them what their favourite traditional tale is and why.  Do they prefer Cinderella or Goldilocks and the Three Bears?

Plant your own mystery ‘magic beans’! You can do this by picking up any kind of seeds or beans at your local shop, mixing your seeds up and planting them without labels so that when they grow, it is a surprise! This links into our new spring Topic, Dig a Little Deeper where we will be looking at the features of different plants.
