Our Topic this term was 'Summer Time' yet the weather has recently changed so we've decided to shuffle our learning around whilst we wait for the sun to return. 

This week we will take a look at a traditional story.

Traditional Stories

We often teach a new traditional story each half term. We explain to the children that they are very old stories that are re-told and the stories you hear are often slightly different.

The story and the song below provide opportunities to discuss similarities and differences in stories.
