Editor of Nursery Education PLUS, Tracey, introduces our ‘Once upon a time’ themed activities and offers more ideas for exploring the topic with your children:

‘The Three Little Pigs is a much-loved favourite story and is a great way to introduce different materials for young children to explore. This story provides excellent opportunities for problem-solving scenarios and its rich, repetitive text is great for children to join in with and re-enact the gestures and sounds. Children love building structures and then knocking them down, so keep a camera close by to capture their short-lived masterpieces! ‘
