The Big Sad Wolf

On 17 May the whole school went over to the hall to watch the Big Sad Wolf performance. There were 3 actors sharing 7 parts. They did a very good job of remixing the Big Bad Wolf.

The story was about a wolf who was a vegetarian and was accused of eating sheep. Then the boy who cried wolf tricked him into looking like he was eating a sheep. The poor wolf was accused of many things he did not do. 

The messages they got across were don’t judge a book by its cover, and there are always two sides to the story.
