Who’s that trip trapping over my bridge?

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.

What was the hardest part of this activity?

What did you learn about bridges?

    The hardest part of building our bridge was putting the straws on the sides.
    Luckily we had Grace J in our group because she was good at putting the straws on the sides. Jack was good to have in our group because he made us laugh.

    • Hi Milly
      \What a good reflection on your bridge building experience. You did manage to secure a good hard working group of children. It is very important that we learn to work together and I’m glad you were able to think of something good about each of your group members. It’s always nice to have someone around that makes us laugh because it makes things more fun. Was there anything you think your group needed to work on?

  2. Dear Miss Hunichen,
    Thanks for replying to me. Perhaps next time our group could spend some more time on our plan and then our bridge could have been a bit stronger.

    From Milly
