The Giant Slide!

The Giant Slide!

Look what fun we have been having in our block area this week…

Read our learning story to find out how we made our GIANT slide!




The Three Little Pigs


We have been learning all about the Three Little Pigs.

We have been practising telling the story ready for showing our parents at our story telling workshop.

Today some of the children retold the story in the puppet theatre.


On the interactive whiteboard we have been exploring different materials and making pictures of buildings.


Construction Critique


We have been making models of houses for the three little pigs.

Once the children had made their models they critiqued them.

They shared them with their friends then thought of how to improve them.

When we critique we give our friends feedback on their work so they can make changes to make it even better. Critique means giving feedback that is specific, helpful and kind.


In the outdoor area the children from FS2 made houses using straw, sticks and bricks.

In FS1 the children worked in pairs to make houses using construction materials.

The children gave each other kind and helpful feedback and we saw big improvements in their work.
