In Term 3 the Prep children have begun to investigate fairytales. Each week students learn about two different fairytales. Some of the stories that we have shared include, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty’. Students have looked at the features of a fairytale and know that they begin with the phrase,
“Once upon a time…”
and end with
“…they lived happily ever after”.
During our developmental play curriculum students have also explored items that often appear in fairytales, such as, castles, magic wands and crowns.
