The 3 Little Pigs

Read the story of The 3 little pigs here

Watch the story of The 3 little pigs here

After reading and watching the story, encourage your child to answer these questions:

 

 

  • What did the first little pig build his house of?
  • Was it strong?
  • What did the wolf say to the pigs?
  • What did the second pig build his house of?
  • What was the strongest house made of?
  • Why do you think that the wolf wanted to eat the pigs?
  • What happened to the wolf at the end of the story?
  • How do you think the wolf felt?
  • What would you use to build your own house?

Once your child has listened to, and watched the story many times help them to make a story map. A story map is simple pictures and words putting the story in order so that they can read and retell the story again and again.

Can your child draw a picture of the big bad wolf from the story?

They might like you to help them to write some things about him, eg sharp teeth, brown fur. Perhaps they could have a go at writing the words themselves, you could write for them or how about making a video of your child describing the wolf. Send in your pictures and videos to homework@gillblowers.nurseryluton.com – we would love to see them and put some on the website for others to see.
