Let's Pretend

A set of 30 Circle Time discussions, each one showing an imaginary event or situation. Many of these are related to familiar story characters prompting children to consider what they might say or do if such an impossible meeting were to occur. What would happen if they were suddenly transported to a fairy-tale world? The worksheets will be fun to complete but will also promote creative writing.

Goldilocks and the 3 Bears Instructional Writing Literacy Kindergarten / Reception

Goldilocks and the 3 Bears Instructional Writing Literacy Kindergarten / Reception

As part of our fairy tales unit we read Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. Having ordered many fairy tale books for the unit that didn't live up to expectations, I highly recommend the Goldilocks version by Amanda Askew as the pictures are lovely and the text easy-to-follow. First we made and sampled our own porridge (Creative Development). Then we wrote our own recipe's for porridge. The plan is differentiated as far as how much detail is expected and although the writing portion took 2 sessions per group my class did such an amazing job with their recipes and I was so proud of them! Included: Plan for making porridge Recipe for making porridge Literacy lesson plan - writing a recipe Porridge-making word mat Literacy lesson plan - retelling the story using paper props I had my students colour and cut their paper props as a completely independent activity, then I laminated and fixed them to Popsicle sticks. They were adorable retelling the story with their puppets! I printed the paper props from here: http://www.heroesprojectindia.org/2016/03/goldilocks-and-the-three-bears-coloring-pages/cool-goldilocks-and-the-three-bears-coloring-pages-83-for-your-seasonal-colouring-pages-with-goldilocks-and-the-three-bears-coloring-pages/

Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk

I used this as a literacy lesson. I told the children that I was Jack's mother and told them all about how worried sick I was when Jack disappeared up the beanstalk. I asked them if they could help me to deter other children from climbing the beanstalk e.g. making a warning poster. The pupils needed to think of powerful adjectives to describe the fierce giant. Includes a PowerPoint to elicit discussion on what the giant looks and sounds like and how he moves. The follow up activity is a 'BEWARE' poster to put at the base of the beanstalk. I have also included simple Welsh lyrics to a song about the Giant or 'Cawr Mawr', to be sung to the tune of 'Adeiladau Ty Bach'.
