The children then set out to use their investigative skills to solve what had happened, there were various golden egg clues and a worksheet to help work out the main character of the story. This was a 'Hook' lesson to excite and engage the children in learning about traditional stories.
In their investigation they linked in Maths skills on Place Value to solve the Golden Egg clues. Later in the lesson they listened to and retold the story.
It was lovely to see so many student collaborating to solve the mystery. The children even thought about this month's Personal Goal of Respect by working together to clean up the Giant's mess! Later the students found a note from the Giant, he had been looking for his Golden Goose and Magical Harp….do you know what the story is?
