Week 1 - The Three Little Pigs

Our story this week was 'The Three Little' Pigs. The children enjoyed listening to the story and joining in with the phrase "I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down." We discussed the differences between different versions of the story. The children retold the story and recalled some refrains.

We played The Three Little Pigs board game, which helped us to take turns, subitise/count the numbers on the dice and count the correct number of jumps to move our counter.

As 'Scientists,' we carried out an investigation to see which material would be the best to use to build a house for Miss Walsh to live in. We talked about the properties of materials and used words like 'heavy,' 'strong, and 'hard.' We made predictions and then tested the materials out using a hairdryer to see if they could withstand the wind and be a suitable material. We discussed our findings and evaluated that bricks were the best material to use to build Miss Walsh's house and that straw was the least suitable material. We made links to the story and recognised that we had the same results as the story. 

Throughout the week we collaged houses using straw and sticks and stamped bricks on using paint and sponges.

We selected which character we would like to make, either a little pig or the wolf. We painted paper plates and added on other materials.

The children enjoyed building houses for the Three Little Pigs in our building site using their tools.
