This week we focused on the fairy tale ‘The Princess and the Pea’.

We looked at the original story from authors like Ian Beck and Chloe Perkins and different versions such as ‘The Princess and the Peas’, by Carly Hart.

We had a creative week retelling and re-enacting the fairy tale with the story’s characters and enjoyed dressing up as kings and queens, princesses and princes in the castle.

In the letter room we focused on ‘f’ for frog. The children were introduced to the amazing changes these amphibians go through once they hatch from frogspawn. We ordered their life cycle stages from tadpoles, to froglets, before becoming adult frogs.

The water trough became a pond where fish, frogs and their young happily swam.
