Today we are going to hear the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs.’ After the story can you make a new house for the pigs to live in? You could make it out of boxes, blocks, sticks or stones? Maybe you want to make all three houses - one of straw, one of sticks and one of bricks? We would love to see your photos. Enjoy!

Today we are having the story of ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker.’ After listening to the story you might like to try the pasta/ Cheerio threading that Miss Collins talks about. This type of activity is great for developing hand eye co-ordination and fine motor skills. Have fun!

Today we are going to think again about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Here is an interesting video all about how a plant grows from a seed. You could discuss the different stages in the cycle and talk about how a plant needs air, water, sunlight and nutrients from the soil to grow. The learning challenge today is to do some gardening- you might like to water some plants, help with weeding or maybe even do some planting. In nursery we would usually plant some bean seeds after this story for the children to explore the growth cycle. If you are at the shops you might like to buy some seeds and enjoy exploring this together. The children usually love taking care of their plants and watching them as they grow.  Have a great weekend.
