Our Spring Term Journey

This half term we have been reading 'The Gingerbread Man'.

We have really enjoyed the story and joining in with 'run, run as fast as you can! You can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man!"


We have been using the gingerbread men cutters in the playdough area. 


We carried out an experiment to find out what would happen if the Gingerbread Man went into the river. 

We put a gingerbread man biscuit in water, washing up liquid, oil and flour. 


            water                      washing up liquid                       oil                                     flour


            water                   washing up liquid                     oil                                     flour

We found that the gingerbread men biscuits in the water and washing up liquid had become soft and broke up, The gingerbread men in the oil and flour were still hard.

We know that the Gingerbread Man wouldn't have been able to swim across the river because he would have turned soft and broken up!


We have made our own gingerbread men.

We had to listen carefully to the instructions and measure out different amounts of each ingredient.

We all had a go at pouring, mixing, rolling and cutting!

We put the gingerbread men in the oven but when we came to school the next day Miss Watmough told us that the gingerbread men had escaped from the oven!

We had a look in the oven and tried to work out what had happened!

Konayn said "The fox got them!"

Aaminah asked "How did the gingerbread men open the door?"

We decided to make some 'wanted' posters to try and find the gingerbread men,

The gingerbread men had left a note saying that they had tried to escape but now they were lost. They needed our help to find them.

The nursery children found the gingerbread men!

Everyone enjoyed eating the gingerbread men!



Nursery put on their coats, hats, scarfs and gloves and went out to play in the snow.

Everyone had a good time out in the snow. They were making marks in the snow, picking it up and making footprints!
