Today we are learning a new sound 'b'.

Today we are sorting and ordering items by size.

Today we are thinking about creating our own version of Goldilocks.
Watch the video below for an example of how the story of Goldilocks can be changed.
Talk to your child about different animals that Goldilocks could meet instead of bears. It could be anything they want. When they have chosen their animal family, talk about where their new version of the story would be set. Bears live in the woods but other animals live in different environments.
Ask your child to create a picture of their new animal family and the place where they live. This could be a painting, a drawing or eve a collage.
You could ask them:
Where is their house?
What does their house look like?
What things might Goldilocks break when she visits the house?
What sort of clothes do the animals wear?
Purple challenge: write some adjectives to describe your animal family.
