Task 1: Identify the Ingredients of a Fairytale
This week, we are going to be looking at fairytales! Can you think of any fairytales that you've heard or read before? Can you think of anything that is the same in those fairytales?
Here are some of the main 'ingredients' of a fairytale...
- Fairytales are usually exciting stories set in magical places.
- They usually have a villain (a 'baddie') and a hero (a 'goodie' who saves the day).
- Sometimes, there are characters with magical powers!
- In fairytales, there is usually a problem- something goes wrong!
- But, there is usually a solution to the problem, so they normally have a happy ending.
Have a look at the video below. It's the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Think about the fairytale ingredients as you watch it!
Think about the main ingredients of a fairytale.
What characters are in Little Red Riding Hood?
Who is the hero?
Who is the villain?
What is the setting?
What is the problem in the story?
How does the story end?
Look at the sheet below and draw the main ingredients in the right boxes. You could also write a sentence to explain what you have drawn underneath!
Task 2: Sequence a Fairytale
Watch the video of Little Red Riding Hood again. Then, see if you can tell the story to someone in your family, remembering all the details!
Look at the pictures below. Can you put them in the correct order? Maybe you can fill in the missing sentences underneath too!
Task 3: Describe Fairytale Characters
Watch the video of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Who are the characters? Is there a villain? What about a hero? Can you think of any heroes and villains from other fairytales you know?
Look at the pictures below. One is of the hero in The Three Billy Goats Gruff and the other is of the villain. Choose one and have a go at labelling it with sentences that describe it in detail.
For example: The enormous, furious troll had a mouth full of sharp, yellow teeth.
