Emperor’s new clothes


We are really enjoying our topic and have been thinking about writing a new story. We have explored the story and characters using storytelling walks, play dough and dressing up. Today we used drama to think about the next chapter of the story about  a greedy queen who demands to have the biggest brightest ruby in the world !

The children thought it was very funny when Mrs Barratt , Mrs Crichard and Mrs Mc Cormick acted the parts of a greedy queen and two tricksters. Can you guess who was who ?

New Term . New topic.

The Emperor’s New Clothes

This term we are working on a Science topic based on the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes. We started this today by hearing the story and discussing it. We read a couple of versions and then tried retelling it to each other. We made mini flap books to help us to remember what happens.

We have a dressing up role play area this term where the children are pretending to be the Emperor trying out new clothes and creative combinations !
