We are looking at the features of story books: title, front cover, back cover, blurb, spine, pages, illustrations, author, text, characters, settings.

 

We are starting this term off with The 3 Little Pigs

 

Once upon a time, there were three little pigs who went off to build their houses.

The first little pig built his house of straw, which was not very strong.

One day, the big bad wolf came and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.”

“Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin,” said the first little pig.

“Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down.”

And he did. And he got the little pig and ate him all up.

The second little pig built his house of sticks, which were not very strong.

One day, the big bad wolf came and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.”

“Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin,” said the second little pig.

“Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house down.”

And he did. And he got the little pig and ate him all up.

The third little pig built his house of bricks, which were very strong.

One day, the big bad wolf came and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.”

“Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin,” said the third little pig.

“Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house down.”

But no matter how much the wolf huffed and puffed, the house did not blow down.

So the big bad wolf said, “I’ll come down the chimney and eat you all up.”

But when the wolf came down the chimney, he fell into a pot of boiling water and boiled all up.

And the third little pig lived happily ever after in his house of bricks.

The end.

 

We will be using story maps to help us retell the story of The 3 Little Pigs.

 

 

 

 

We will be reading the true story of the 3 Little Pigs to find out the wolf's version of events.

 

We will be changing the characters in the story and changing the style of the houses that the characters build.

 

This week, 9th March, we are looking at changing the characters in the story of the three little pigs. The children have decided that they want to tell the story of the three little dinosaurs and the big bad t-rex. Towards the end of the week we will looking at changing the different types of houses that the dinosaurs build.

 

We will also be making funny face pancakes on Friday for Red Nose Day as well as painting each other faces with face paints. The children can come dressed in a RND t-shirt or wear a red t-shirt on Friday. Donations of £1 will go towards our partner school in Chembe, Zambia.

Goldilocks and the 3 Bears story

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks.  She  went for a walk in the forest.  Pretty soon, she came upon a house.  She knocked and, when no one answered, she walked right in.
At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge. 

 

Goldilocks was hungry.  She tasted the porridge from the first bowl.

"This porridge is too hot!" she exclaimed.

So, she tasted the porridge from the second bowl.

"This porridge is too cold," she said

So, she tasted the last bowl of porridge.

"Ahhh, this porridge is just right," she said happily and she ate it all up.

 

After she'd eaten the three bears' breakfasts she decided she was feeling a little tired.  So, she walked into the living room where she saw three chairs.  Goldilocks sat in the first chair to rest her feet.  

"This chair is too big!" she exclaimed.

So she sat in the second chair.

"This chair is too big, too!"  she whined.

So she tried the last and smallest chair.

"Ahhh, this chair is just right," she sighed.  But just as she settled down into the chair to rest, it broke into pieces!

 

Goldilocks was very tired by this time, so she went upstairs to the bedroom.  She lay down in the first bed, but it was too hard.  Then she lay in the second bed, but it was too soft.  Then she lay down in the third bed and it was just right.  Goldilocks fell asleep.

As she was sleeping, the three bears came home.

"Someone's been eating my porridge," growled the Papa bear.

"Someone's been eating my porridge," said the Mama bear.

"Someone's been eating my porridge and they ate it all up!" cried the Baby bear.

"Someone's been sitting in my chair," growled the Papa bear.

"Someone's been sitting in my chair," said the Mama bear.

"Someone's been sitting in my chair and they've broken it all to pieces," cried the Baby bear.

They decided to look around some more and when they got upstairs to the bedroom, Papa bear growled, "Someone's been sleeping in my bed,"

"Someone's been sleeping in my bed, too" said the Mama bear

"Someone's been sleeping in my bed and she's still there!" exclaimed Baby bear.

Just then, Goldilocks woke up and saw the three bears.  She screamed, "Help!"  And she jumped up and ran out of the room.  Goldilocks ran down the stairs, opened the door, and ran away into the forest.  And she never returned to the home of the three bears.
