As a result of the clip of the Gingerbread Friends entering our classroom we mind mapped our initial thoughts and feelings.
We created our own thinking bubble .
We were intrigued to look for ourselves in the home corner. We just couldn’t find the Gingerbread Friends!
We carried out an experiment to see what would have happed to the Gingerbread Man if he went into the water. We also tested placing Gingerbread Men in puddles of fruit juice, vinegar and cooking oil. All liquids made the Gingerbread Men soggy apart from oil.
We discovered the Gingerbread Friends had been heard in the forest so we decided to build a hideout for them to live in and traps to capture the characters who chased them from the story.
