Spring 1 "The Big Freeze"
In this section, you'll find some stories for you to read and listen to at home. Scroll through to find which story you'd like to listen to. Adapt any of the following stories by adding in some sensory items to make the story more sensory and exciting! Try making some penguins out of old toilet rolls just like the one from the Expressive Arts folder, and then use it to refer to when telling the story.
We hope you enjoy listening and reading the stories and let us know which one is your favourite!
Listen to this story called, "Way Up in the Arctic", and have a go at making some of the animals in the Expressive Arts file. Bring the story to life, and once you've made them you can then use them, interacting with them when you listen to the story!
