Billy Goats Gruff troll found guilty.

Today, year 3 put the troll from the Three Billy Goats Gruff story on trial in their very own classroom courtroom.

Members of the prosecution and defence teams put questions to the troll and the three billy goats, and it was left to the jury to decide whether the troll was guilty of trying to eat the billy goats or whether the billy goats had made up the tale as an excuse for knocking the troll off of the bridge.

It seems there are 2 sides to every story.

See pictures from the courtroom below.



Traditional Tales

Year 3 have started learning about traditional tales in their literacy lessons.

Today we have been acting out some familiar traditional tales using puppets.




Do you recognise any of the traditional tales from the puppets they are using?

What is your favourite traditional tale?

What do year 3 need in their toolkit to be able to write their own traditional tale?
