The Little Red Hen

We have been learning all about the Little Red Hen. We have been retelling the story using storytelling language and actions. We use storytelling as a tool for helping children build up a bank of narrative patterns that they can then call upon when they wish to create their own stories as they get older.


We uploaded our storytelling onto Tapestry for our parents to see, if you haven't already, we know your child would love to watch it with you!


Here are some of our story telling actions we have practised.

We have also used this opportunity to practise both our reading and writing. We read some words such a 'pig' and 'cat' and matched them to the correct picture. We then had a go at writing the corresponding words the next day.

The children have settled well since starting school in September and have had great fun making friends and playing within Reception.
