The Enormous Turnip
Reception children acted out the story using character masks and an enormous turnip. They also role played the story with stick puppets. They thought about other things that grow throughout the week too. They dug for tricky words written on vegetables in the soil, counted and sorted fruit counters and cut out fruit, vegetables, plants and flower pictures from magazines. They also grew their own cress and tasted it. Some thought it was yummy and some did not! During Creative Time they made Easter baskets, and Easter crowns. They also coloured in Easter eggs and made cute Easter bunny cards using their hand as a template.
