Knowledge organiser for the second half of Spring
Jack and the Beanstalk
The children loved acting out this story at The Rainbow Factory so the teachers decided that this was going to be the next book we focus on. We got a very special delivery from Miss Oldham, an exciting envelope was on my Miss Oldhams desk. She brought them down to Reception, inside was magic beans. One of the children had a fabulous idea. He wanted to try planting one. Look at the magic beans that we planted. The children have been watering the magic beans. They have grown so much since we planted them.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
The children have really enjoyed the two weeks we have focused on Goldilocks. During the first week, we went into detail of the story, we looked at the vocabulary and discussed the moral of the story. In the second week, we helped Goldilocks say sorry to the Three Bears. The children came up with the idea of making cakes for Valentine's Day. Goldilocks would send the cake to the Three Bears.
But first, we must buy the ingredients for the cakes. A group of children went to Asda with Miss Carling and Miss Begum. We used the lists we made at school to ensure we didn't forget anything.
