You Can't Catch Me I'm a Gingerbread Man

Run, run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread man.

We have really enjoyed this traditional tale. It provides lots of opportunities to join in and act out the story. We have shared lots of different versions of the story but in every one the gingerbread man comes to a sticky end! We talked about how the little gingerbread man could have crossed the river safely. We decided a boat was best and used the big blocks outside to build one. We had spoons for oars and had to work together to get across the river.

 We also had a gingerbread man hunt outside. We found 20! We brought them back to the hill and put them all in the right order. …then we closed our eyes and guess what? When we opened them they had disappeared and we had to find them all over again!
