This week the children have enjoyed learning the story ‘The Train Ride’. First, the children helped tell the story through the use of small world props and later in the week we used pictures to sequence the story. The children were confident to say what a ‘journey’ is and were keen to talk about some of the journeys they have been on. We had some fantastic writing this week as the children used their imagination to write about where the hot air balloon in the story may take them. We had ideas such as ‘to donut land’ ‘a magical forest’ and ‘the end of the rainbow’.
The children have used lots of imaginative language outside this week as our den became a train station. They worked collaboratively using the crates, tyres and planks to make their own train. We are looking forward to going on the train next week to Cassiobury Park!
