Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a well-known British fairy tale that was first published in the 19th century by English poet Robert Southey. The story follows a girl named Goldilocks who enters an empty home and decides to eat the food of the bears that live there. When the bears return they are horrified to see their breakfast has been eaten and a little girl (Goldilocks) asleep in Baby Bear’s bed. When Goldilocks awakes, she is so frightened by the bears that she runs away.
There have been various adaptions of the story from an opera to a number of television films and shows. The most recent adaptation was in 2016 by Disney Junior with an animated series called Goldie & Bear. It set after the events of the original tale when Goldilocks and Jack Bear (Baby Bear) go on adventures with other fairy tale characters from The Three Little Pigs to Little Red Riding Hood.
Goldilocks is a fictional character created by Robert Southey in 1837.
Baby Bear is afictional character and is one of three bears in the story.
Fairy tales are often a fable or a story that has a moral purpose. Goldilocks and the Three Bears shows how an individual’s action can hurt others, and that we should respect other people’s property and possessions. It is important to teach students about respecting people and their property, and even if someone lets us use something of theirs that we look after it and give it back to them in the condition they gave it to us.

Whilst the main benefit is to improve the student’s English vocabulary with words they will frequently use and hear, there is lots to be learnt within the context of many subjects from this topic. For example, whilst learning the word polite in PSHE my intention is that the students learn that being polite is important and not the word solely.
