We received a letter from the fairy tale police asking us for our help to find a little girl called Goldilocks. We read her story and learnt about the wrong choices that she had made. The bears were extremely upset and wanted our help to find her so she could apologise. We eventually found Goldilocks but she needed our help to write a letter to send to the three bears so we agreed. Here are a few examples of our lovely work. Goldilocks was very grateful and promised not do it again.
