Hansel and Gretel Primary School Activity Overview

Hansel and Gretel Primary School Activity Overview

Here is a great overview of lots of activities based on the full text of the tale of Hansel and Gretel from the collection made by the Grimm brothers. There is a full introduction to the text used, with a brief historical context to the setting. I have included an approach to how to introduce the text to children, either as a read story or a performed oral tale. Following that, there are extensive activities designed for warm-up games for concentration or drama, creative activities indoors or outdoors. at Forest School or similar. Tasks include: carving, cookery, puppetry, making and following pathways, fire safety, hot chocolate and bread, having a feast, drama, problem solving, art and design, science (light and dark), poetry and understanding texts. I have included a recommended background reading for teachers interested in the history of the Grimms Tales and the more rewarding versions of the stories than the norm. Most of the activities are suitable for EYFS or Key Stage 1, but Lower Key Stage 2 would probably benefit from them too.
