Run, run as fast as you can! You can't catch me- I'm the Gingerbread Man!
Welcome back! We hope that you all had a lovely week and we are excited to get started with the second half of the term.
Our learning this week has all been based around 'The Gingerbread Man'. On Monday we had to follow some clues to find out who had left crumbs and a note on the floor. So we did just that and along the way found a button, a person shaped cutter and a pot of ginger. Finally, in the cloakroom we found the Gingerbread Man hiding!
After reading 'The Gingerbread Man' story we learned that he can't get across the river, so takes a ride from the sneaky fox. We talked about why the Gingerbread Man couldn't cross the river by himself and decided that he would get too wet and soggy. To test this prediction we put a real gingerbread man into a bowl of water and left him all morning- by the time we took him out he had gone soft and far too soggy, so he fell apart!
On Wednesday we had our parent session, which was lovely- a big thank you for coming.
