This term, we are going to be reading lots of traditional tales including Cinderella and The Three Billy Goat's Gruff.
With a wicked stepmother and two jealous stepsisters who keep her enslaved and in rags, Cinderella stands no chance of attending the royal ball. When her fairy godmother appears and magically transforms her reality into a dream come true, Cinderella enchants the handsome Prince Charming at the ball, but must face the wrath of her enraged stepmother and sisters when the spell wears off at midnight.
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
The Three Billy Goats Gruff outsmart the troll living under the bridge by each convincing him to wait for the next goat, who they say is bigger and fatter than them. He follows their advice and waits for each goat. The last goat is, indeed, large - large enough to stand a chance against the troll in a fight. The biggest goat kicks the troll off the bridge, crosses, and joins his brothers in the field.

Term 2 Topic - Wonderous Weather, Wonderous World
Our core text this term is:
'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' by Judi Barrett
The tiny town of Chewandswallow was very much like any other tiny town—except for its weather which came three times a day, at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
But it never rained rain and it never snowed snow and it never blew just wind. It rained things like soup and juice. It snowed things like mashed potatoes. And sometimes the wind blew in storms of hamburgers.
Life for the townspeople was delicious until the weather took a turn for the worse. The food got larger and larger and so did the portions. Chewandswallow was plagued by damaging floods and storms of huge food. The town was a mess and the people feared for their lives.
Something had to be done, and in a hurry.
