Red Riding Hood in Reception Swallows

In Reception Swallows we have been learning the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We used Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk for writing’ approach to retell the story using our story map – we have learnt lots of story language and actions to match! In maths we have made a fruit salad for Red Riding Hood’s Granny – we had to count the ingredients and draw the recipe using our 10s frames.

Within the continuous provision we have been making soup in the mud kitchen, acting out the story on the stage outside, dressing up as the characters in our new role play area and making ‘get well soon’ cards for Granny!

We also took part in Languages Day on Monday. Have a look at the video to see a story of our week…
