The Three Little Pigs


As part of our ‘houses and homes’ theme year one have been learning all about The Three Little Pigs this week. First we read the story together using a PowerPoint presentation on the interactive whiteboard. I like to read stories this way as it makes them extra visual which makes it more interesting for my EAL pupils. As we were reading the story we discussed what materials the houses were made of, and if the pigs had made good or bad choices.


After that the children retold the story in their own words as I transcribed it on the board. Due to the fact that The Three Little Pigs is such a familiar tale, the children were able to retell the story in great detail. Each child was then given a line from the retelling to illustrate and then we put it all together to make our class big book.

I hope you like their efforts:

  1. I love the house of sticks! I think that would have fallen in if I had blown on it!

    There are some really good alternative tellings of this story, including ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig’ (one of my personal favourites!) Maybe your children would like to read these as an extension sometime!

    • Thanks James.

      We’re going to look at “The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig” next week.

      We’re also going to add speech bubbles to our big book so watch out for those.
