It was a cold dark night by Tim Hopgood (1st Nov - 12th Nov 2021)

For the next few weeks we are thinking about 'It was a cold dark night' story. This story is about a hedgehog called Ned, Ned is looking for a home in the cold dark forest. He needs somewhere warm and cozy to sleep but he keeps finding the other creatures homes! Will he ever find a snug safe bed of his own?
From listening to this story it has given us lots of ideas of what sort of activities we could do ...

We used play dough to make our own Ned's and we used spaghetti to make the prickles.  We collected leaves and twigs to make Ned a cozy home and we also set up a small world area with lots of woodland puppets to help us to create our own stories ...

How to catch a star by Oliver Jeffers ... (29th Nov -10th Dec 2021)

Once there was a boy who loved stars so much that he wished he had his own. Every night he watched the stars in the sky from his bedroom window and he dreamed of how he could be their friend and how they could play hide & seek together. 

Over the next few weeks we will be learning lots about space, planets and about the world around us, this story provides us with lots of problem solving opportunities.
