Storytime: Goldilocks and the Three Bears

What you need

  • 3 different sized bowls
  • Water
  • Porridge
  • Measuring cups (if available)


Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word.

The experience

Goldilocks wanders far from home and stumbles upon the house of the three bears. First sitting in all of their chairs and tasting all of their porridge, then lying in all of their beds, she finds the little baby bear’s item to be the most suitable for her in all three cases. 

This classic fairy tale read by Rik is a children’s favourite! Sit back and enjoy. 

After watching the video, why not practice your early maths skills by preparing 3 different sized bowls of porridge? How much water would you pour on the first, second and third bowl? How many scoops of porridge would you add?
