This week Grade 1B have been learning all about the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We learnt that it was written in Norway over 100 years ago by a man called Peter Christen Asbjornsen. The children enjoyed reading different versions of the story throughout the week. We compared the story of The Three Kangaroos Gruff to The Three Billy Goats Gruff and discovered that the story was very similar they had just changed the characters. We used masks to act out the play and wrote descriptions about trolls. The best activity of the week was when we made bridges out of newspaper, icy pole sticks, straws and masking tape. We worked in groups of three and were only allowed a certain number of sticks and straws. It was a really challenging task but one that we kept working at. Most groups should be proud of the way that they worked together to produce their bridge.
