Story Week

The toddler children at Portland House enjoyed a fun filled story telling day at nursery!

We have been focusing on the “Elmer the Elephant“ story starting off by reading the book together then making our own Elmer the elephant pictures looking at the images in the story and talking about the colours we could see before collaging our own Elmer.

Katie set up a Goldilocks and the three bears tray with three different sized chairs, bears, spoons and bowls of porridge oats. She read the story to the children before they then had a go at feeding each of the bears.

We also leant the 'When Goldilocks went to the house of three bears' song too.

Lyrics to Goldilocks song

1. When Goldilocks went to the house of three bears,
Oh what did her blue eyes see?
A bowl that was huge,
A bowl that was small,
And a bowl that was tiny and that was all,
She counted them: one, two, three

2. When Goldilocks went to the house of three bears,
Oh what did her blue eyes see?
A chair that was huge,
A chair that was small,
And a chair that was tiny and that was all,
She counted them: one, two, three

3. When Goldilocks went to the house of three bears,
Oh what did her blue eyes see?
A bed that was huge,
A bed that was small,
And a bed that was tiny and that was all,
She counted them: one, two, three

4. When Goldilocks ran from the house of three bears,
Oh what did her blue eyes see?
A bear that was huge,
A bear that was small,
And a bear that was tiny and that was all,
They growled at her: grrr, grrr, grrr!
