The Three Little Pigs (Modern version)

This advertisement for The Guardian appeared this week and made me think about how it could be used with Primary aged children.

This approach to the story could lead to discussions about other stories and how they would be presented in the modern press.

How would the press treat Cinderella or Hansel & Gretel?

    Haha – Hadnt seen that. Yeah, Its great. On last placement we did newspaper reports inspired from Nursery Rhymes and fairy tales but it would be great giving them this modern slant too!

    Wonderful! A great slant on a modern classic and such a rich resource. Opens up many diverse questions on morals, modern society, sides of arguments, etc. Would be completely wasted with a Literacy-only focus.
