This week we have been creating our own alternative fairy tales. We have looked at the structure of traditional tales and found some common themes. The usually start with "once upon a time..." and often end with "...and they lived happily ever after." There are bad and good characters, there is usually some kind of magic and often a rule of 3...the 3 bears, the 3 little pigs, Jack goes up the beanstalk 3 times!
We have used these themes to create our own stories, here are some of our titles...
The 3 Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig
Little Red Riding Wolf
The 12 Jumping Kangaroos
The 3 Little Raptors and the Big Bad Spinosaurus
