Nursery have been focusing on the story ‘The Gingerbread Man’. Last week we read the story and at the end a mystery envelope fell out of the book. It was a note from the Gingerbread Man explaining that he had left clues around the school for us to follow.
“I’ve left my friends for you to snack,
But I’ll bet you’ll never get me back!
Look for me where there are lots of books!”
“I’ve read lots of books,
But I’m gone, can’t you see?
I’m the Gingerbread Man and you can’t catch me!
Look for me by a friendly face who answers phones in a busy place”
“The Business Manager has a friendly face
And answers phones in a busy place.
Find me by the leader of our school.”
“This is Mrs Hinstridge’s office.
She’s nice, you know.
She told me not to run anymore,
But to walk, wherever I go.
Go find me where lunches are served.”
“This is the lunch hall.
Mary and her friends like us a bunch,
And always make sure we have a good lunch.
I’m getting a bit tired as you can see,
Nursery class is where I will be!”
When we arrived back in Nursery we found the Gingerbread Man and he had left us some special biscuits to enjoy. We then enjoyed a variety of different activities based around the story, including sequencing pictures, putting the correct number of buttons on the gingerbread men using finger paints, designing our own Gingerbread Man and making Gingerbread Men in the playdough.
