This week we will begin our new Learning Unit which is called Once Upon a Time. On Tuesday we will have our Entry Point which will be an exciting morning of Fairy-tales. We will have a storyteller visit our classroom dressed up as a Fairy-tale character! The mystery storyteller will also bring along a story box filled with exciting story props!
We will begin to build our Role-Play area which will have a Fairy-tale theme. The Role-play will grow and change as we progress through our Learning Unit. We will look at the Big Picture of Once Upon a Time and find out what exciting learning we are going to explore, the children will also have opportunities to give their own ideas, interests and suggestions in our Capturing Curiosity session.  
We will begin to use puppets and story sacks with exciting props to support us in retelling familiar stories and tales. This will be great practice in developing our communication skills!
Our learning this week will help us to answer and discuss this week's Big Question; What's you favourite story? At home this week at bed time try to look at some traditional fairy tales with Mum and Dad, from your home country or beyond. If you would like to, you could bring in a Fairytale book (or print out) from home to share with the class at carpet time. We'd love to discover some new unfamiliar Fairytales from some of your home countries!
Here is a traditional fairy-tale/story from my home country, Scotland! It's about a Lochness Monster!
