There are 3 goats in the story of 'The Billy Goats Gruff'.
Here are 3 fingers. Can you hold up 3 fingers like this?
Can you holdup fingers to match the numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10?
If a grown up says a number can you hold up the right amount of fingers as fast as you can?
Why not have a go at making some soup for the Billy goats tea - you just need to use your imagination - it is very easy.
You will need
an old saucepan or bowl

a jug of water
Mix together whichever ingredients you fancy with the spoon or a stick.
Pour into a couple of bowls - fantastic Billy goats soup.
Will and Nancy tried to make a bridge like the one in the story of the Billy Goats Gruff.
They balanced a mat on top of a tin of beans and a jar of jam.
Will sat on it to see if it was a strong bridge.
Could you have a go at making a bridge?
It could be big or small.
You could make it inside or outside.
You can use anything you want to make your special bridge.
Today we have a difficult challenge for you to try at home.
The word 'goat' has four letters in it.
Have a go at writing the four letters one at a time.
Use the pictures and rhymes below from our phonic system to help you.
Remember to hold your pencil correctly if you can - a grown up will help you
Start with the letter 'o' as this is the easiest one to write.
Try and start writing from the top of the letter.
Now have a go at 'a'. It is like 'o' and you start writing from the top of the letter.
Now try 't'. Remember to start at the top again and put the line across at the end.
The last letter is 'g'. This is like writing 'a' with a long curl underneath. It is difficult to do but have a go - you can do it.
When you have tried writing the four letters can you write them again in the right order to make goat?
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
