The FS2 children had many learning opportunities during our current topic on traditional stories and fairytales, it gripped their interest and inspired their imaginations. We have seen great progress in the children’s Communication, Language and Literacy skills. There has also been some wonderful mathematical opportunities and many of us have been offered half and quarter slices of ‘playdough pizza’. There has also been lots of talk of money and how much things cost.
‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ inspired our role play areas to be converted into shoe shops and the children thoroughly enjoyed buying, selling and walking around in a variety of fantastic shoes that were so kindly, and bravely if I may add, lent to us by our parents.
As is evident, this topic has been a great success and what better way to end than with our Fairytale Ball?!
