We have been on a shopping trip to buy some of the fruits from the story, including oranges and bananas, as well as some more unusual ones like pineapple, mangoes and avocado.
Before eating the fruit, the children have had a go at doing observational paintings of a fruit still life. Once they had completed their masterpieces there was then the chance to do a taste test of all the different fruits in the basket.
We have also been retelling the story using story props. The children went on a treasure hunt around the nursery to find all the small world animals they needed to be characters in their own story
