Adapting Fairy Stories (Years 9 and 10)

Students delve into the conventions of fairy stories, considering their structure and language. Having established the stylistic techniques, and engaged in short-burst writing activities in the 'traditional style', they then look at different adaptations of the tales before rewriting them from different viewpoints - like the witch's viewpoint in 'Hansel and Gretel', and the wolf's viewpoint in 'The Three Little Pigs'. They then have fun reading 'politically correct' fairy tales, and after oral rehearsal, pair work, group work and drama activities, write their own 'politically correct' stories. Two assessment tasks, a peer assessment activity and a homework VLE unit complete the package. Contents: (6-8 lesson scheme of work, full resources and lesson plans) Classroom presentations VLE Homework presentation 9 page workbook Peer assessment resource Full lesson plans Note: All images are free to use commercially.

Developed as a response to PIe Corbetts 'Talk for Writing' and the encouragement that children should leave their year group having been exposed to a variety of quality writers, genres and with a bank of stories in their head that they can draw from. Teachers sometimes choose to use a text in their literacy teaching, it may be stimulus for other subjects or just a class read, but we are encouraging that they read the books on their list throughout the year. The list was developed with the teachers and teaching assistants contributions and discussed with staff.
