Poor Rapunzel had a hole in her roof and wondered if we could suggest what to repair it with. We helped by investigating which material would be the best at not allowing any water through. The plastic and the metal were both good choices in the end.
The children in Swallows enjoyed our engage day for our new topic ‘Storytellers.’ They identified fairy tales by looking at clues, practised their stitching skills to make puppets, baked gingerbread men and made a forest picture using folded card and black ink.
This half term our topic is Storytellers. For our engage day we looked at lots of well-known fairy tales. We chose a character, designed and sewed a hand puppet. We then added detail with felt, buttons and pens. Using ink we created a mysterious woodland scene, and then added charcoal to enhance it. We also made delicious gingerbread men that didn’t run away!
