Goldilocks and the Three Bears
This is our theme for the next two weeks.
You can watch a simple version of the story here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oaw-d3r_gIc
If you have the story book at home read that.
Below is a list of possible activities. You may have your own ideas and please don’t feel that you need to do it all. It may help if you are struggling for things to do.
Act out the story – find some teddies to take roles or use ask other members of the family to join in. Can you find props? Bowl, spoons, chairs of different sizes.
Can you make labels for them? Eg Daddy Bears chair, Mummy Bears chair ….
Perhaps Goldilocks would have written a letter or made a card to show how sorry she was for her bad behaviour. Maybe she would have made a cake to say sorry? Feel free to use your imagination – try to encourage lots of talk and introduce some form of writing.
A letter template for Goldilocks and some pictures to use for role play
If you found props for Goldilocks and the three bears can you use mathematical language to describe them? (small, tiny, big, bigger, medium sized, tall, taller, tallest, short, long, wide etc). Can you sort the items in order of size? Can you find a way to measure them? You could use your hands, some Duplo or Lego bricks or a shoe. Draw some pictures of the items in your home learning book and write the measurements down.
Some Maths activities based around the book Supertato - A favourite in Sunshine Class
Some lovely ideas for maths inside and outside related to everyday objects and play.
Make a house for the three bears using recycling or construction.
Draw or paint some pictures of the story.
Make porridge and try it with different toppings.
Could you make a big map (with chalk outside?) showing the woods where the three bears live and Goldilocks house?
Make puppets of the characters.
Our story this week is the story of Jesus resurrection.
There is a simple power point that you can look at and talk about.
Use a paper plate or circle of card to make a face puppet with a smiley happy face on one side and a sad crying face on the other. Use the puppet to help retell the story.
