Good Morning Everyone

Today we are going to look at the story The Three Little Pigs. You might have the storybook at home to read with an adult but if not you could ask an adult to watch the story on this link:


An activity you can try is

Retell the story of the Three Little Pigs and try to use a different voice for each pig. What sort of voice would the wolf use? You could try to make puppets to re enact the story. Paper cut outs could be taped to the handles of spoons. Or you could build your own house using lego or duplo bricks.


Our song is about the three little pigs….


Have fun and stay safe over the holidays
