Autumn 2 2019
In this unit, Year 3 and 4 will be writing their own Fairy Tales, using many well-known traditional- and fairy-tales as inspiration - however, our pupils' challenge will be to add a 'twist' to each story to impress their characters on these well-known stories. They will be sharing these stories with their parents at our end-of-term outcome, a Snuggle Up evening in the school hall, where they will also be demonstrating their skills as performance poets.
Hook: We all shared fairy stories in the library. As we read, them we looked for common themes and characteristics between them.
While we were writing our twisted fairy tales, we were also thinking about how we would illustrate our stories. We used charcoal to create our internal illustrations and water colours for our cover illustrations.
