English - we have been learning about 'The Gingerbread Man'

Retell the story together chanting 

'Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man.'

Talk about the beginning of the story - what did the little old woman and the little oid man make?

Talk about the middle of the story - when the different characters in the story that try to catch the gingerbread man.

Talk about the end of the story - why does the gingerbread man stop running? Who does he meet? What happens to him?

Perhaps watch the story on 'youtube'



Last week we were measuring height, length and distance.

Today talk about weight - learning and using the words 'heavy, light, heavier than, lighter than and about the same weight'

Use your hands like a balance scale, find two objects that you can hold. Which one feels heavy/light?

Repeat with other objects... Make two groups, one with the heavy objects and one with the lighter ones.

Another free game can be found on 'Top Marks'

Go to 'Measures' then 'Happy Camel' and help the camel to find it's toy!


Have a lovely day and remember to share some stories.
