Year 5 - The Three Little Pigs - Who Was Really to Blame?

Year five watched a clip about ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and discussed the story, using their summarising skills. Year five then discussed how the clip/story is only one-sided, bias, in favour of the three little pigs!


Year five then looked at evidence to infer and predict potential new leads within the case to see who really was to blame! The evidence they looked at was: fingerprints, used matchsticks, inhaler with blood on and a button belonging to the wolf which was found in the pigs boiling pot!


Once they analysed the evidence, they decided as a whole class that maybe the story wasn’t as simple as what they first anticipated and perhaps the pigs weren’t as innocent as they seemed!

The following day, Year five, in groups looked at further evidence: Tweets from various different people, the wolf’s family, the three little pigs, different newspapers and news productions and members of the public.


After looking closely at the tweets, they read and retrieved key information from them to organise each tweet into one of two categories; for or against. In groups, they discussed who they believed the criminal and victims were. The unanimous decision was that… the pigs were to blame!
