The children have chosen our next story The 3 Little Pigs. The boys all wanted to be the wolf trying to blow the houses down but they didn't all quite have enough puff. Together we used different materials to build the 3 little pigs houses. The children decided that they wouldn't build houses using straw and twigs because the wolf would eat them and they all needed a house like their Mummy's and Daddy's made of bricks. The wolf was so pleased with all our fantastic work this week he sent us a special present, some Marks and Spencer's Percy pig sweets. Yummy!
