Story Focus: Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Phonics

Play 'I Spy with My Little Eye'.

I Spy teaches young children to hear the first sound in a word, for example the 'b' in bear or the 'm' in mummy.

To extend this activity you could count how many of each story item you can spot.

Can you retell the story together at home?

Can you start your story with 'Once upon a time' and finish it with 'The End'

Think about what happens when Goldilocks ate the porridge. Did she like them all? What happened to the chair? And in the end who came into the bedroom?

Phonics 

Play Describe and Find It

Set up a model farmyard. Describe one of the animals but do not tell your child its name. Say, for example: This animal has horns, four legs and a tail. Ask them to say which animal it is. Ask them to make the noise the animal might make.

This activity can be carried out with other sets of objects such as zoo animals, toy sets, transport (e.g. aeroplane, car, train, bus, boat) and musical instruments. It can be made more challenging by introducing sets of random objects to describe and name.
