Mr Wolf’s Pancakes

Mr Wolf’s Pancakes

It was ‘Pancake Day’ this week and we couldn’t let this pass by without making pancakes. I thought it would be lovely to share the book, ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes’ too, so we’ve had activities related to this, & the characters in it, over the week. Here are some of them…


Little Red Riding Hood Small World Play

Red Riding Hood Doll

My mum gave me the doll that she used in her own classroom – Red Riding Hood at one end, and when you turn her upside down she is Grandma on one side and the wolf dressed up as Grandma on the other. The children absolutely loved it – lots of fab story telling 🙂

Storying on the Light Panel 

This was what a few of the children picked out to go on the light panel… farm animals and 3D shapes! Very random! We did a bit of ‘Chicken Licken’ story telling, but the children mostly enjoyed building and trapping the animals…

Mr Wolf Books

There are two other Mr Wolf books (as far as I know!). We love them all, but the children especially enjoyed Mr Wolf and the Three Bears…

  1. I know I’ve seen this question and your answer on another of your posts but where are those counters you use on your OHP from? Great post as usual 🙂

    • I think they’ll come up if you search counting chips on the TTS website (in the UK) 🙂

      • Lovely thank you 🙂

        • You’re welcome!

  2. My class also loved the story and I think I’ll make a story basket. Where did you get the pancake images from? I have searched but can’t find anything as authentic! Wish I’d taken more photos of the ones we cooked now!

    • I just did an image search on Google, Faye.
