Our Visit to The New Bookshop
As a class we visited The New Bookshop in Cockermouth to pick up our monthly collection of picture books. Whilst at the bookshop we listened to three fantastic story, our favourite being Whats in the Witches Kitchen. After listening to the stories the children are given a chance to independently select and look at books in the shop.
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
Our book focus for the first part of this half term is The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children have enjoyed learning about this story, especially when we spotted a real troll next to the bridge on the way to The New Bookshop! We have been using actions to help us re-tell the story without reading the book or looking at pictures. In PE we built a bridge using our climbing apparatus and acted out the story. In our outside area lots of children have been busy building bridges and houses using our de-constructed role play items and wet sand for concrete.
