Reception – Three Little Pigs

This week we have been looking at the very popular story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have explored various texts by different authors and talked about how they are different and similar. We have also learnt some lovely songs linked to the story and the children were very good at being the big, bad wolf!

We have learnt the signs: ‘pig’ and ‘wolf’. In addition, linking with our narrative work, we have learnt the sign for ‘what happened next’ and have made predictions as to what will happen next during our story times.

To help develop our vocabulary we also learnt different words for ‘little’. These are ‘tiny’, ‘minute’ and ‘minuscule’.

We have talked about different houses around the world and what they are made of. We then had a go at drawing a plan of our own home and then building it using LEGO or Duplo. We have also discussed materials and what different things around us are made of. The children loved exploring the Discovery Garden and finding things that were man-made and natural.

Please have a look at the Home Learning that has been attached to find some fun activities that link to each area of your child’s learning. We would love to hear from you about your child’s home learning. Please could you email these to us at:

A few notes:

  • We would love to receive any recyclable material for our junk modelling station. These can include cardboard boxes, cleaned out yoghurt pots or plastic containers. Please can we ask that anything that contained nuts does not come in due to allergies, thank you.
