‘A love for God, ourselves and others’


Weeks 1 & 2 - The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Monday 1st June


The next 2 week's challenges will be based on The Three Billy Goats Gruff.


Phonics: Please keep practising your phonics every day and continue to work through the Phase 3 sounds at your own speed. Keep working on the tricky words.


Reading: It is important that you continue to read every day. Try reading ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ with your mum or dad so you know the story really well.  Sound out some of the words by yourself. Can you join in with parts of the story that you know?


Drama: Could you act out the story using the role play masks? Could you retell the story to your teddies?


Writing: Discuss the different letter sounds you can see in the story e.g. the ‘ff’ of Gruff, the ‘ss’ of grass or the ‘ll’ of troll. Can you use descriptive words to describe the troll or the billy goats? For example, ‘The troll had sharp teeth and a big nose’. Could you make a ‘Wanted’ poster for the troll? Could you write a sorry note from the troll to the billy goats or from the goats asking the troll if they could cross his bridge? Get mummy or daddy to take a photo of your writing and send it to me or put it on EExAT.


Maths: Can you order the goats from smallest to largest? Talk about the sizes used in the story – smallest, medium sized, biggest – can you find toys and items from home and group them in these sizes? Using 2D and 3D shapes, try building your own bridge. Try grouping items in 3’s and count up to find totals. Email me a photo of you working or upload it to EExAT.


Understanding The World: Try building your own bridge for the goats to cross or growing your own green grass. If the billy goats couldn’t use the bridge, could you build them a raft?


Art & Design: Using junk modelling, build and paint your own bridge. Can you design your own scary troll?


Music: Try singing some of the songs with mummy or daddy.


Physical Development: Can you make bridge shapes with your bodies? In your back gardens or if you are out on a walk, can you find bricks or stepping stones to make a bridge to step across? Build a bridge and go over and under it.


Lucky Dip: Surprise me! Send me a photo or video of you learning to do something that I wouldn't expect!


Some children are now learning back in school and some children are continuing to work from home. Wherever you are learning, remember to have fun and stay safe! yes
