F1 - Once Upon a Time…
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin... Once upon a time there was a teacher called Miss Frisby who worked in a wonderful school in the Land of Langold. She taught lots of gorgeous children with the help of many wonderful teachers including Mrs Fenton, Miss Hopkinson, Mrs P and Mrs Parker. Her children’s lives were full of exciting learning and they always had a smile on their face. One day Miss Frisby thought: We need something outside to help our children use language to recreate roles and experiences in their play. Something that is really exciting… something that links into our Tree-mendous Tuesday adventures… something truly amazing! Then she had an idea! A mud kitchen! But alas, they cost lots of golden coins and Miss Frisby didn’t know how they would ever save enough to buy the magical kitchen. Then she had an idea! I wonder if we could fund raise with the help of the wonderful Foundation parents in the Kingdom of Langold, maybe then we could reach our goal. So the children put on their wellies and walked hundreds of miles on a sponsored welly walk and they raised enough golden coins to buy one!! Miss Frisby began to look for the perfect kitchen but the search proved very difficult. But one day, on her walk to the library with the children and some of their lovely parents, a Fairy Godmother appeared. It was Sofia Simpson’s Mum, Tracy, and she said. ‘Don’t worry Miss Frisby, I know someone who will be able to help you, my husband Prince Rob.’ Then our very own resident Fairy Godmother Mrs Bacon said, ‘We have some pallets at home that you could use!’ and her husband Prince Pete chopped them up for us. Prince Rob did an amazing job and a truly magnificent kitchen was made. It was the finest kitchen in all of the land. And the children had a resource that fed their already active imagination, developed the use of expressive language, helped them explore texture, weight and capacity and supported their mark making. And they all lived happily ever after and were covered in mud!
Thank you to everyone that made this happen and all your donations of utensils! You are amazing!
We also had an amazing Tree-mendous Tuesday adventure featuring lots of learning like measuring puddles with a stick, making friends with worms, finding treasure, spotting Gruffalo footprints and finding a new path! But you need to go on our blog to find out more and of course leave us a comment!
