The children have been sharing a favourite story of 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea'. So far we have painted tiger stripes, made tins of Tiger Food, played the Shopping List Game and re-enacted the story using our Story Sack resources.

We will also be making torn paper stripey collages, decorating orange tiger biscuits, discussing our favourite foods and making food plate collages, writing shopping lists and making sandwiches for our own 'afternoon tea' party.

Other key stories have/ will be Spot the dog- focusing on positional language and The Train Ride- focusing on repetitive text and rhythm.

The children have loved learning the rhyme of '5 Currant Buns'.

We have counted sets of buns, talked about taking them away and how many are left, and used pennies to buy them from the baker.

We made our own currant buns following a recipe and even bought them at snack time using real money.

We have made currant bun play dough for children to develop skills of rolling and shaping balls of dough and use to role-play in the 'baker's shop' and sing the song whilst practicing counting small sets of objects.
