Will and Nancy the puppets enjoyed reading the story of 'The three little pigs' together today.
They also watched the story on the internet using the link above.
The puppets went outside into the garden and found a selection of sticks and flowers. They used them to make a picture of 'the house of sticks'.
Could you have a go at making a picture too?
After the three little pigs got rid of the big bad wolf, they enjoyed living together in the brick house. However after a while they decided that it was too small for all of them and they decided to build a new house.
Could you draw a picture of the big house that all the pigs lived in together?
Can you retell the story of the three little pigs to an adult? You could use different voices for the pigs and the wolf.
Nancy the puppet challenged Will to play another number game.
She gave him a number card and asked him to collect the correct number of sticks to match the number.
He was really good at the game so she challenged him to do it as fast as he could.
Could you play the game at home?
You could play with sticks, flowers, socks, Lego or anything else you can find.
The word 'pig' starts with the sound 'p'.
Can you say the sound 'p p p pig' like we do when we are at school?
Nancy started tomake a collection of objects that also start with the sound 'p'.
Can you find more things that start with 'p'?
Here is a list to help you - plaster, plant, pants, pyjamas, pebble, purple, pink etc.
Today you could try and make a picture of one of the three little pigs using a few objects that you may have in your home.
You will need - paper, 3 round shapes (small, medium and large) a pink crayon, a black or brown crayon, a pair of scissors and some glue.
Draw around the round shapes and cut them out.
Colour the shapes pink (or whatever colour you fancy)
Stick the small shape on the top of the medium size shape
Stick the medium size shape on top of the large shape
Use the black or brown crayon to draw two eyes, two ears, a mouth, a nose, a tail and some feet.
Your pig is finished - well done
There are lots of rainbows in the windows of houses in Whitwell to say thank you to all the people working for the NHS.
Can you make a rainbow using small objects in your house or garden?
Draw a rainbow and then find a few red objects to put on top of the colour red.
We have done this activity at nursery and produced some stunning rainbows - have a go at home.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
