Foundation and Year 1 children had a visit from a theatre group on Tuesday who presented the story of Goldilocks and The 3 Bears. The show was brilliant and the children really enjoyed all the songs and dances. It was lovely to observe because the children have learned the story so well they knew the words and joined in with “it’s too hot” or “it’s too cold” as Goldilocks tried the porridge until it was just right! They also understood the message from the story that even though we sometimes make mistakes, the best thing we can do it to say ‘sorry’.
Stories are a wonderful way to bring learning to our younger children; they really enjoy playing the characters and retelling it with their friends. They learn the language of the story in English and then change it to make stories of their own. Brilliant!
