Term 4 Traditional Tales
Once upon a time, up an enormous green beanstalk in the clouds which hung over Wainscott, Strood there was a mystical, mysterious fairy tale land.

Yes, that right this term we are going to learn about a variety of Traditional Tales– focusing on the features of writing as well as reinforcing the key elements of grammar that make stories come alive. We will link our writing to other areas of the curriculum too. This term we will be looking at Traditional Tales. Each week we will introduce a new story, sharing the text via books, the interactive white board (IWB) and role play. We will be looking at the characters within, the homes they lived in, the morals of the story and the lay out and sequence of a traditional fairy tale. To support your child's learning we will read the children a variety of pieces of the same story to compare and contrast. During the topic there will be some fantastic opportunities to retell stories using story boards, maps and puppets, look at houses and homes and build structures like bridges in Science and talk about emotions to develop a deeper understanding of right and wrong and linking this with our school core values. You may already be familiar with some of these traditional tales. Which one is your favourite? Which Traditional fairy tale characters can you spot in this picture?
