The Enormous Turnip and other stories.

We started the term with a theatrical treat! The Storybox Theatre visited us at school to give a wonderful performance of traditional tales which included The Enormous Turnip, The Bean, the Stick and the Coal and The Princess and the Pea. Rod wove all the stories together with his beautifully made puppets who brought the stories to life in a magical way. 

We will be learning our own version of The Enormous Turnip this term, which we will be telling in our usual way, using actions and making our own story books. 

Back in the classroom, the children were full of enthusiasm and excitement and wrote brilliant reviews, using all our writing skills.

I have been very impressed with the children's number knowledge this week too. We have been counting everything we have come across this week in twos. Ask your children to give you a demo; they are quite impressive!
