Welcome to Year 1
This half term we are looking at the text “Goldilocks and Just the One Bear” written by Leigh Hodgkinson.
In this story we meet some familiar characters from a well-known traditional tale. Many years have passed since Goldilocks caused chaos at the Bears' house in the woods, but what happens when Little Bear as was wanders out of his fairy tale and into the big city where Goldilocks now lives?
Goldilocks is now grown up with a family and a rather smart apartment, so how will she react to coming home and finding that a very lost bear has been scoffing porridge, breaking chairs and sleeping in beds? Will she be cross, or is finally time to make amends?
