Early Years: Olympus

Welcome to Olympus

We have PE on Monday and Forest School on Fridays – please wear warm comfortable clothes as it can be cold in the woodland area. If you have a pair of boots please bring them in and name them.

Will you read me a story?

Was the Big Bad Wolf really so bad? How many bowls of porridge did Goldilocks eat? Explore these questions and more in this magical project all about fairy tales, goodies and baddies!

We will learn about:
• fairy tale characters
• goodies and baddies
• homes and castles
• magic and fantasy
• writing and telling stories

The children discovered a crime scene and used the clues to work out that Goldilocks had tipped chairs over and made a mess with the porridge! The children enjoyed cooking porridge and choosing their topping.

 Help your child prepare for their project:

Reading fairy tales can sweep us away into a fantastical world. Why not visit your local library together to read lots of different versions? You could also watch children’s films on this theme and discuss the different types of characters. Alternatively, you could use toys to retell favourite fairy tales.
