The Gingerbread Man and Reception's first Elmer party!

Class: Reception Year: 2015 - 2016

As part of our early Literacy work in Reception, we have been focussing on Traditional Tales and nursery rhymes. 

We began by reading the fabulous rhying story 'Once Upon A TIme' by John Prater, which is well worth getting hold of to share at home. We have a couple of copies to borrow in our class library. 

This week we have been focussing on The Gingerbread Man. We read the story, retold it ourselves, role played it, drew and labelled pictures and looked at gingerbread recipes. Finally, we printed gingerbread men hats and baked gingerbread biscuits, which we enjoyed decorating and eating at our first ever Elmer Party! 

If your child would like to follow up this work at home, you could look at an interactive version of the story or try following a recipe to make your own gingerbread men, using the links below:
