Family Gruff

Share This Post

This term Sunflower Class is reading The Three Billy Goats Gruff, a famous Norwegian folktale that holds all the exciting elements needed to charm and inspire our children.

Teaching happens through stories. Three Billy Goats Gruff uses interesting animal characters and the story is highly relatable to children as they learn how to face tough situations in their daily lives. When listening to stories children are encouraged to use their imagination and it lays the foundation for literacy and language development. Three Billy Goats Gruff also conveys social values and morals. Young children love repetition and this works perfectly with stories with a moral value because by listening to the story repeatedly in the classroom they familiarise with the story and the moral lesson. Three Billy Goats Gruff is a fun rhythm-based story and Teacher Juliet carries it through into their other classwork, such as drawing and colouring in which further engages their imagination and promotes concentration and creativity.
