Last week the Sunbeams enjoyed listening to the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff . We decided to invite the troll to play ! The children joined in with a variety of activities based around the story. We set up a role play area with props and puppets so that the children could retell and act out the story. They designed their own troll masks using collage materials. We used a range of construction toys to build bridges over the river so that the goats could cross safely . The children moved in different ways across the 'Sunbeam' river , trying not to wake the sleeping troll as they passed. We were also able to extend the learning to include number and size language .
At the end of the week we made lunch for the hungry troll so that he wouldn't want to eat our goats ! He ate all of the delicious cakes that the children made . They were very cross with him for not sharing. Luckily we found some more !
