Next week we will be looking at the story ‘Oliver’s Milkshake’ by Vivian French. The story is about a little boy who doesn’t like milk. He is taken on a surprise visit to a farm where he gets all the ingredients to make a healthy fruit milkshake. The children will be learning about where milk comes from and write an information page about cows. They will have fun making their own milkshake just like Oliver and write instructions of how to do. They will be writing a recipe list. The children will be writing about their favourite fruit.
This week we read the story of ‘Olivers’ Vegetables’. The children have drawn amazing vegetable oil pastel pictures. They have been writing shopping lists. They have tasted a variety of vegetables.

After half term we will be looking at the tale of the ‘Little Red Hen’. The story is about a Hen wanting help to make bread, but all of her friends are busy. The children will be learning about where flour comes from and how bread is made. The moral of the story is that it is important to work together and share the rewards of this. Importantly, the children will explore how the Hen feels when her friends do not want to help her. We will be discussing the Hen’s feelings and her friends’ feelings. The children will be sequencing the story and they will be writing their own new ending for the story.
