Half term homework

Your homework this half term.

In literacy half next term, we will be looking at traditional tales. Your task over the holidays is to research your favourite traditional tale, e.g. Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks and the Three Bears or Little Red Riding Hood. You may choose to research a traditional tale from a different culture, such as the Anansi stories. Re-tell this story in a creative way. For example, you may choose to role-play and then video it, create a story board or re tell the tale from a different point of view. Explain why this is your favourite traditional tale.
