Good Morning Reception,

How are we all feeling today? I hope you’re doing well!

So I’ve been thinking a lot about toilet rolls (I know what you’re thinking but this is Miss Phillips you’re talking about!) and how they could be used to craft something fun! I decided to have a little look on google to get some inspiration for you guys and I stumbled across a picture of The Three Little Pigs! I absolutely loved this idea and thought, hmm… I wonder if the children could make their favourite character from a Traditional Tale and tell the story to their parents. This could not only be entertaining for the parents/carers but will also work well on the children’s story telling skills! The main purpose of this activity would be for the children to recognise a beginning, middle and end, knowing a range of different characters from a story and understanding what a setting is.

I have attached the inspiration picture to this blog and I would love for the children to have a go! If they are wanting to try writing small sections of the story or labelling the characters that would be amazing! I also have listed some Traditional Tales below to give you some ideas.

Don’t forget you can send us all your lovely pictures to the class email!

Happy Story Telling and Crafting;
