During the week we focused on our last 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.

The children had a lot of fun playing in the sensory tray with the split peas, especially when the leprechaun came to visit with his pot of gold on St Patrick’s day.
