Castles, dragons and Rapunzel
Our Traditional Tales topic has taken us far and wide across Storyland. But there was one character’s problem we had yet to explore – Rapunzel’s and the need to launch a rescue mission. Falling for Rapunzel by Emma Wilcox.
Non-surprisingly Rapunzel was having a bit of difficulty hearing Prince Posh and ended up throwing lots of funny things out of her tower...
Rapunzel, Rapunzel throw down your hair.
And with that she threw down her frilly underwear!
Rapunzel, Rapunzel throw down your locks!
And with that she threw down her rather smelly socks!
We topped off the week giving Rapunzel a haircut, exploring length and height. But could the children cut Rapunzel's hair so it was equal to the height of the tower?
It also gave us a perfect opportunity to develop our calculation skills – partitioning Rapunzel’s tower to represent bonds of numbers that total 10 and subtracting any single number from 10 and 20 to reduce the height of Rapunzel’s tower )and hopefully allow her to hear more accurately)!
The following week we saw our classroom turn into a world of Castles and Dragons. RB have proved themselves to be super Knights of the Round Table, creating shields ready for battle! Of course like any good night we had to design our own Coat of Arms showing off what we are brilliant at. We had lots of wonderful ideas including ...The Kind....The Brave and ...The Strong.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
