Three Little Pigs

This week in Reception, the children have been learning all about The Three Little Pigs. They’ve been using their construction skills to make their own houses like the ones in the story- they’ve especially enjoyed mixing and spreading their own cement to make their houses stronger! They have also been remembering and using all the repetitive language from the book to retell the story in many different ways.

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.​
