Can you think of any other words that mean the same as gingerly? Make a list.


Our book this week is The Three Billy Goats Gruff. I’m sure you probably know this story already. Don’t forget as you read through the story look out for our word of the week ‘gingerly’.


Now try answering these questions about the story.

What was the story about?

Who are the main characters?

What was your favourite part? Why?


Tuesday 12th May

Try writing a sentence using our word of the week - gingerly.


Draw a picture of the troll in the middle of your page. Now use some lovely adjectives to describe him. Think about what he looks like first. Start at his feet and work your way up to his head. Now think about his personality, how does he behave? You could use a different colour pencil for his appearance (what he looks like) and his personality.




Wednesday 13th May

That troll is a pretty nasty character isn’t he? I’m sure the police would like a word with him! Your task today is to create a ‘Wanted!’ poster to help the police to find him. Remember to use some of your wonderful adjectives from yesterday.


Thursday 14th May

Look at these two sentences using 'gingerly'. One makes sense, one doesn't. Can you work out which is which?

Gingerly, the man  stepped into the boat.

That classroom was gingerly.


Now tomorrow we’d like you to retell the story so you’ll need some props. Masks, maybe even some musical instruments to make the ‘trip trap’ sound as the goats cross the bridge. We’ve included some ideas to help you.


Friday 15th May

We’ve included a powerpoint version of the story, have a look at this and then have a go at completing the story map. You don’t have to use the one we’ve included, you could draw your own.

Now see if you can tell your own Three Billy Goats Gruff story using the props you made yesterday.

Send us some photos if you can, we’d love to see them.

End of week challenge:

Try building a bridge out of recycling materials – make it strong enough for the troll to cross.
