Wolf Won’t Bite

Are you familiar with the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf?  Ever wondered what it would be like if the pigs were bad instead of the wolf?  Well… if you answered yes to any of these questions then you’re in luck!

For the last fortnight, children in Hazel & Birch Class have been learning a story called ‘Wolf Won’t Bite’ by Emily Gravett.

In our story, the Three Little Pigs capture a wild wolf and make him perform lots of tricks at the circus.  As you can imagine, the wolf doesn’t really enjoy being made to do lots of tricks, eventually his loses his patience and…well I don’t want to spoil it for you so I’ll stop there!

If you would like to hear what happens to the wolf in the original story, why not ask your child about the story? There is a key phrase that is repeated throughout the story which hopefully all of the children will have remembered, and perhaps get them to retell the story to you?

Maybe the children could answer the following question – “If you were the wolf, would you bite the pigs and say why?”

Or perhaps they could talk to you about their own version of this story, with the wolf visiting the playground instead of the circus?  The children had to think of places the wolf could visit and describe what he might do (for example the wolf zooming down a zipwire).

The children have also been using Clicker 7 software on the computers to produce their own electronic book versions of their stories.

The children have shown fantastic speaking, listening, empathy, explaining, writing, drawing, making and computing skills in all their learning with ‘Wolf Won’t Bite’. I have really enjoyed reading this story with them and I hope they enjoyed it too!
