4th May - Reading for pleasure
At Pear Tree we love to instill a reading for pleasure ethos in our children. These children picked books to read with their friends in a variety of different spaces.
6th - 29th April - Three Little Pigs
Plum Tree have had lots of fun exploring 'Three Little Pigs'. They found a crime scene in their outdoor area and were able to work as a team to problem solve. The children then investigated different materials - straw, sticks and wooden blocks. They used their creativity to design and make houses out of the available materials.
19th - 23rd April - Little Red Riding Hood
The children have been exploring the book 'Little Red Riding Hood'. They have been re-telling the story with their friends, making art work and they have even tasted different kinds of breads. The children enjoyed trying a mix of different breads, including pitta, fruit loaf, baguettes and tortilla wraps.
