>The first class found the story funny and the sound effects made them laugh! They
thought the story included a cow, a mountain climber, a giant, a fairy, water, fire and
thunder. They watched it a few times to try and understand it.
Story of
Búkolla (The
Magic Cow)
The children first thought the cow was putting out the fire with her udder. Later, we
realised how she helped to put out the fire by drinking up the water. One child was
certain that the noise was a woodpecker, but the other children thought it was
thunder. Thank you for sharing your story with us. We enjoyed it!
>The second class thought it was about an Old lady who had a toothbrush and was
wearing her pyjamas. She sees a cow on the mountain. The woman moos loudly
because it is very cold! A giant comes and cow uses pixie dust magic. The water
comes and the cow drinks it. Two giants come back and the cow makes fire come
with magic. Then magic thunder comes. The giant isn’t happy so he goes away.
We liked the cow mooing loudly. We liked the giant because of his big stomps.
We learnt that giants are big and tall and don’t like loud noises!

Story of The
Little Old
Some of the comments we got were:
She was sad and crying (the old lady) because the wolf drank her water
The cat ran upstairs and he was going home to his real house
It was a funny story and it was funny when the wolf drank the water
Is she a muslim? Because she got a (head)dress and glasses
I was scared because it was frightening.
>The second class thought that the story was about an old woman who lives on a
farm. She is really old. The woman has no milk so she wakes up her cow. She gets
milk from her cow and then she goes to the shop to get some food to have with the
milk. When she is at the shop the cat drinks the milk. But then the old woman comes
back and shouts at and chases the cat. The cat is scared and climbs up a tree. The old
woman feels sad and says sorry to the cat.

found out more information, that they were very, very small.

Spain’s story
of El Cargol i
l'herbeta de
They thought that it was about a snail who woke up with a tummy ache. So the
snail went to see the doctor who told him to find a special plant. The snail had to
look in a lot of places to find the plant. When he did find it he couldn’t pull it out.
The snail kept finding more and more friends to help him to pull but they could pull
it out. When there were lots of animal friends the plant did come out and all of the
animals fell over. The snail said “thank you” and then went without the plant
because his tummy ache had gone so his friends were angry!

story of Who
wants to
>The first class thought it was about a girl doing the housework. She was very upset
and began to cry. But then she found a necklace and she was curious. The girl put on
the necklace and all of a sudden she was happy. Lots of animals came to visit her.
They arrived and she sent them away each time. However when a mouse came she
said “yes” to him. We think she is choosing a best friend. The other animals all go
away and eat food together.
