Room 8 have just started looking at a new story, ‘Grandpa’s Handkerchief’. The story is about a sociable and kindly Grandpa who plays with his grand-children every day – thus providing us with a fun way to learn the days of the week.
Red, blue, yellow, green… Grandpa’s handkerchiefs are useful in so many ways! For waving to trains, making a sailing boat, bandaging a knee, or reminding Grandpa about a special birthday!
Each day focuses on a different activity. Monday is about trains singing and dancing. Tuesday is about playing at the park. Wednesday we are going to be pirates with hats and swords. Thursday is party with a very exciting and unusual cake. Friday is baking. Saturday is football and Sunday is gardening.
The class are going to be working on this story over the next three weeks as we learn the different songs and actions to accompany each exciting day with ‘Grandpa’s Handkerchief’.
