Back to school, we have started this new term full of energy. In Reception, we are learning the traditional tale of The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff is a famous Norwegian folktale that tells the story of a mean and hungry troll who lives under a bridge. He’s hungry for a meal and would love to snatch and eat any goat attempting to cross his bridge. How can the three goats get across safely? They must be clever! A wonderful children’s story.
We have linked this to our science and engineering investigation. The children have enjoyed problem solving to make a bridge that is strong enough to support 3 goats!
They have showed great initiative, imagination and resilience because there were lots of trial and error! By the end of the day we had some very sophisticated bridges!
