This week we read the story of The Three Little Pigs and told our own version of the story. We thought about the parts of the story and what we could change. We decided we would change some of the words, where our story happened, the characters or the ending. Here are some of our great stories…
The Three Little Good Wolves and the Big Giant Pig that’s Naughty
By Lillie-Rae, Age 4
Once upon a time the mamma wolf said “build your own houses!” The wolves said “Yes mamma” and then one made a house out of straw and other one made house of sticks and a other one made a house of bricks. And then the big, giant pig came and the big, giant pig said “LET ME IN!” and the wolves said, “I won’t let you in by the hairs on my uncle’s chin.” Then the big giant pig tried to kick the door down but it was stinging his trotter, so he gave it a big, giant kick and it fell down. So the wolf went to the house of sticks. The big naughty pig came. Then he took a stick and it all fell down. Then the two wolves ran to brother’s house made of bricks. Then the pig came and tried to knock it down with his hammer but he couldn’t ’cause it was a baby hammer. Then he got some ladders, climbed up the chimney and the wolves made a fire and the pig fell in the fire and they tipped him into the toilet and flushed him all the way down. The End.

Once upon a time there was a little piggy, he was walking through the forest with the icky sticky mud and he was jumping in the muddy puddles. Then the wolf came, he said “Knock, knock, can I come in?” “No by the hairs on my chinny, chinny chin!” “Then I’ll puff, then I will puff then I will blow your house down.” That was the end of the second little piggy.
Then the other little piggy was walking on the street and he heard a knock like this (Millie knocked) and this time it was a vampire. He eat the pig and they turned into piggy vampires!

What have we been learning?
We have been learning all about stories. We have been learning about characters, events and settings. We are starting to understanding that stories have a beginning, middle and end. We are being imaginative and changing parts of the story. We are starting to describe using adjectives and making sure our stories make sense.
How can you continue learning at home?
Make sure children have lots of opportunities to tell their own stories at home. This could be when they are playing with their toys or dressing up. When you share books together encourage children to make up their own words for the story.
