Today in Nursery we were very excited to find that a basket of fresh bread had been delivered. We passed the bread around in circle time, and talked about where it may have come from and who could have brought it.
#ooj “It is bread, Red Riding Hood bought the bread from Asda”
#lj “She lives in a cottage and had to get the bus to bring the bread to Nursery”
#rr “She lives in a village”
#gk “You bake the bread in the oven”
#dg “Mummy has bread like this in my house”
Inside of the basket was a letter addressed to Nursery, it was from somebody called the Little Red Hen, who told us that she had baked the bread for us.
But who was the Little Red Hen? We read a about her to find out.
After the story, we talked about how kind it was of the Little Red Hen to bake some bread for us, because after all, the animals in the story were not very helpful to her, so it was lovely of her to think to share it with us instead!
We thought it would be a good idea to write a letter back to the Little Red Hen to say thank you. We each had a go at mark-making a letter back to the Little Red Hen, some of us copying from a scribed piece of writing to begin practising our letter formation.
After writing a letter to the Little Red Hen it was time for snack. We used this time to tuck into the delicious fresh bread.
#oe “It tastes like toast”
#st “It tastes like cracker”
#lj “It tastes like bread and is delicious”
We look forward to continuing our learning about the Little Red Hen over the coming weeks!
