Weekly Activities 27.4.20

Welcome to a new week of home learning tasks! This week we would like to focus our learning tasks around the traditional story 'The Three Little Pigs'. This story is familiar to many of the children and has been told many times over the years. 

Activity 1: Share the story of 'The Three Little Pigs' with your child in many different ways 

- through a paper copy of the story, online ebook, interactive film clip or your own oral retelling. 

Once your child is familiar with the story, talk about it and pose key questions to check their understanding, for example: 

How many pigs were there?                       Where did they live?                  Who did they live with?       Who did their mother warn them about?        How did she feel?           

(Deeper thinking) What would your mum have said to you?

What did they do after they had left their mothers house?     

What materials did they make their houses out of?

(Deeper thinking) What did the wolf look like?                How did the wolf behave?

What words can you use to describe the wolf?

Why did the wolf follow the three pigs?

(Deeper thinking) What questions could we ask the wolf if we met him?

What happens after each pig built their house?     

How did the pigs feel when they saw the wolf? 

(Deeper thinking) What would you have done or how would you have felt if you were one of the pigs? 

Activity 2: Can you try the 'Three Little Pig' home learning challenges? (attached below). Twinkl.co.uk has lots more FREE resources that you could explore we have attached a few of them below.
