Interview with the Big Bad Wolf
This is an activity that our children really enjoyed doing and they came up with some brilliant responses. You can either role-play with the children being the wolf or get them to write down their answers (both worked excellently for us). The police have arrested the Big Bad Wolf after complaints from one of the surviving Three Little Pigs. They have him in their cell and ask him these questions. (Questions and idea by Paul Cockcroft and myself) Our children used these answers to go on and write a true account of the familiar fairy story. When the children have answered the questions you could put the wolf on trial and get the rest of the class to decide if the excuses are good enough to let the wolf off!
were you on Thursday 23rd May when the pigs were leaving home?
Q2. We have
witnesses that saw you following the pigs. You are suspected of
causing criminal damage to a straw house. What do you have to
say to that?
Q3. Not satisfied
with destroying the house, the pig has not been seen since. Can
you explain where he is?
Q4. The same
occured when you visited the second pig. A local farmer saw you.
Can you explain the events on that day for us please?
Q5. The third
pig reported you for harassing him on three occasions. You then
tried to break into his house shouting, and I quote, "I'm going
to eat you!" How do you explain this?
Q6. Is there
anything you want to tell us that we have missed out that may
help your defence Mr Wolfe?
