Our main literacy work in Year 1 recently has involved the wonderful Little Red Hen book. This is the story all about the hen that has a few problems in finding some friends to help bake some bread. Many excuses are offered up in the book as to why the other animals are too busy to help out.
We have asked the Year 1 pupils to use their imagination and to think of their own reasons as to why the Little Red Hen couldn’t find any support. Some of these included listening to music, reading a magazine or even sunbathing. We then acted out our own version of the story using some Little Red Hen puppets. This work will conclude with the baking of some bread.
You can watch some of the Year 1 Little Red Hen stories being read out in the video above.
