R/KS1 Assembly – What has Tiddler got to do with integrity, honesty and truth?

In our assembly today, we thought about the words integrity, honesty and truth. We discussed a few ideas about what the words might mean but agreed that we need more time to discuss with our classes.

We then read the opening of Tiddler, by Julia Donaldson and considered what these words have to do with the story.

Maybe you can think about some different words that mean the same thing (synonyms) or maybe you could give an example of what this word might look like in the classroom? I look forward to hearing what your class thought about your word.

Jack and the Beanstalk in Reception

Our topic this term is Traditional Tales and today we started our learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. We have started to paint a beanstalk and it’s leaves and some children wrote labels for pictures of the character of Jack. After lunch there was a surprise as the Magic Bean man had crept into the classroom during lunchtime and left each child a pot of magic beans. We then counted the beans we had and used an adding machine to find out how many two of us had when we added them altogether.
