Creative Writing: Fairy Tales - Part One
The purpose of the unit is to use the pupils’ prior knowledge of Fairy Tales to develop their understanding of how literature reflects social, historical and cultural contexts through reading different variations of the Cinderella Fairy Tale. The pupils will focus on the conventions of the genre, through their commonality and variation in the Cinderella narratives and how they have been adapted and inverted in the Shrek films, to write their own ‘Cinderella’ Fairy Tale. The unit, because of the number of resources, is separated into two parts.
