Into the Woods

This term our topic is ‘Into the Woods’ and the first story we are learning about is Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We transformed our role play areas into the cottage from the story and the children have already been busy retelling and acting out their favourite parts of the traditional tale. The children have also been busy using their weighing and measuring skills to make something tasty to eat this week… Can you guess what it was?!

At Thistle Hill, our children are excited and motivated to engage in rich and challenging experiences, both inside and outside of their classroom. We have high ambitions for all of our children, with staff planning carefully to meet each child’s needs and stage of development, ensuring our children get off to a great start in their education. Child initiated play based learning is at the heart of our practice. We carefully plan for opportunities, activities and experiences that develop all of our children into independent, resilient and confident learners.​
