Ideas for activities at home linked to the 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' topic:
- Retelling the story with puppets, pictures or props! (top tip: wooden spoons can be easily made into a variety of characters!)
- Making your own porridge!
- Looking at objects and talking about their size. What other words can we use to describe something small? Medium? Large?
- Talk about how the characters may have felt? How did baby bear feel when he found his chair broken? How may have Goldilocks felt when she woke up and saw three bears?
- Have a teddy bear's picnic!
- Go to the library and read a 'fractured fairy tale' such as 'Believe Me, Goldilocks Rocks' by Nancy Loewen. (A fractured fairy tale is a tale that is based on a traditional fairy tale however is designed to be humorous by changing the story in an unexpected way!)
