Our big think this half term is 'Should Goldilocks say sorry?'
This topic allows us to really explore this favourite traditional tale, and provides lots of discussion, roleplay and exciting challenges including - 'Can you build a chair for baby bear?'
Our questions each week will be:
Week 1 – Do you feel sad for the three bears? How can Goldilocks say sorry? (week 1 writing structure)
Week 2 – How do we know if a character is good or bad? (week 2 writing structure)
Week 3 – Can we help baby bear find a new chair?
Week 4 – What famous bears do we know?
Week 5 – What do I know about bears? Would we find a real bear at Broomwood woods?
Our stunning start is a 'crime scene investigation - where Goldilocks has been to visit and our fantastic finish to celebrate the topic and our learning will be a teddy bears picnic.
In our last week of half term we will be enjoying an exciting STEM week (science, technology, engineering and maths) to find out how we can put humpty dumpty back together again. This will involve making things to protect eggs, exploring the properties of materials, including eggs and reflecting on our work to make improvements.
