Visiting the school oak tree

This week in Reception we have been reading The Oak Tree by Julia Donaldson. We have used story maps to retell and act out the story. We explored outside to find some 'roots' and 'shoots' as part of our vocabulary lessons. The children also learnt about the name of their school and went to visit the school oak tree. The children were surprised to find there was only one leaf on the tree! You can listen to the story with your child here:

Next we will continue to learn this story and learn more vocabulary from the book.
