Hi Im new to reception and I just want some help planning a 2 week topic around Hansel and Gretal.

Has anyone got any ideas to cover the KUW, PSED and CLL strand.

 

(Particularly the CLL strand- mark making activities needed for the LA)

 

Help will be much appreciated....the internet is useless!!!

 

Thank you

Is there a chance of writing recipes for a gingerbread house, or a shopping list etc.

 

Not over keen on Hansel and Gretel - particularly the bit with the parents tricking the children into going into the forest in the first place - abandonment issues!!! Nightmares etc. Or as with many fairy tales have the re-written a version which is much friendlier?

CLL- how about decorating houses with different patterns using a range of different materials- e.g. finger painting handwriting patterns, felt pens, crayons, using wool and other materials to stick to patterns....

 

PSED- what to do if you get lost- safe child scheme- what to do if out in a shop and get lost/ seperated from parents. Stranger danger.

 

KUW- making maps following trails to a house- link to outdoor play- set up an obstacle course to get to the playhouse....

 

Just a few quick ideas.. hope they help

IKEA have those ginger bread houses to assemble and you ice and decorate with sweets

children could use those icing pens to create patterns on the walls (flat pack) make their own decorated digestive biscuit withtheir name?

Hansel and Gretel is one of my class's favourite stories! They love it and don't seem to really have any problem with the parents abandoning their children in the forest, to them that isn't the bit they remember at all. The first time we read it we did talk briefly about why the parents were abandoning the children (the bit about being poor was mentioned in detail in the story) and why it was wrong, but actually they're far more interested in what happens in the witch's cottage.
