Billy Goats Gruff.
This week we have all been having lots of fun acting out the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The first time the teachers had a play, much to the amusement of the children and then the children took turns playing different roles. Every morning we set up the bridge and the children would soon ask for the track to be played.Play acting gives children the opportunity to discover other ways of being creative and also the knowledge that stories can be told and retold in other ways apart from print.It also gives children a chance to practice confidence and courage as they try something that may be out of their confort zone.We will continue this for the next while and we all look forward to seeing what develops.
