Watch amazing Animated Fairy Tales playlist including Little Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs, , Sleeping Beauty, Snow White Rapunzel, The Gingerbread Man and many more - About: The Gingerbread Man (also known as The Gingerbread Boy or The Gingerbread Runner) is a fairy tale about a gingerbread man's escape from various pursuers and his eventual demise between the jaws of a fox.

When learning about the body the children enjoyed listening to 'The Gingerbread Man' story. We learnt the names of different parts of our body. We also had lots of fun making our own Gingerbread men, which tasted delicious.

Settling into the Nursery

The first half term, we talked about ourselves, our interests and our families.

The children were encouraged to explore the environment and choose resources and activities independently.
