This week we read the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. We have 2 versions of this at Preschool and the children particularly enjoyed the modern one where Goldilocks didn’t want to eat a healthy breakfast and wanted to have jelly and ice cream instead. She was so cross at not getting her own way that she ran away into the woods where she found the bears’ cottage. When she tried the porridge she threw the first bowl on the floor and the second at the wall and when the bears found her she was afraid they would eat her for dinner. However they persuaded her to tidy up and then gave her some food instead. We read the story a few times during the week as well as the traditional version which we also read in the woods at Forest school. We had our own porridge at snack time with honey and used the porridge oats with all sorts of resources . Some children made bear badges and others made masks. By the end of the week they were able to retell the story themselves.
