Spring 2: Little Red Hen

The Little Red Hen

This week, as part of our ‘Eggs and growth’ topic we have started learning the story of The Little Red Hen as our Talk for Writing story. On the back of this letter there is a story mat, which helps the children to tell the story. As they tell it, they also do actions, which also help with remembering.


Please could you practise telling the story at home? You might even like to try acting it out. As we work on the story, we will explore the meaning of words, some of the story language and structure... We will do this through role play, discussion, experimenting with making bread. We will talk about whether it is a fair ending to the story.


Eventually we are going to write our own version of this traditional tale, when Mrs Owen plants some potatoes and asks the children for help. We are hoping that they all lend a hand, and then we will be able to share the results of our growing and cooking!


Just a quick reminder that, due to timetable changes, we now do PE on Tuesdays. Electronic reading books will also now be allocated on Tuesdays.
