The Gingerbread Man
This week our work on traditional tales focused on The Gingerbread Man. After reading the story and developing our fluency with some echo reading, we had great fun following the bossy instructions when baking our own. The children really enjoyed mixing, rolling and decorating their gingerbread men and were very excited to taste them at snack time! The children were also challenged to use their knowledge of materials to build a boat for the gingerbread man to help him escape from the sly fox - some were more successful than others!
