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.

All the elements of the T.A.L.K. and L.E.A.R.N. process can be successfully adapted across the curriculum. Students are encouraged to use the lesson Learning Intentions and Success Criteria, to take ownership of their learning, to give meaningful feedback and feed forward and to treat each other with respect and kindness, fostering positive, healthy relationships. To encourage development of effective peer and self assessment skills, teachers should model the ‘TALK’ and ‘LEARN” approaches frequently with students. Teachers and students should also “mix it up” - students can TALK to themselves or LEARN with a peer. or make use of a rubric.

Aim for Five Star Work: Student Self-Assessment Rubric Poster

Aim for Five Star Work: Student Self-Assessment Rubric Poster

Designed for use in Creative Arts (Visual Arts) , this poster encourages students to self-monitor their learning with attention to the Success Criteria and design requirements of their task, their use of media and attention to detail, their creative efforts, their completion of tasks in a timely manner and general co-operation in the class setting. It is worth spending a little time 'unpacking' the rubric with your students to clarify your expectations and theirs in each area. As a teacher your understanding of 'Craftsmanship', is probably different to the students' initial understanding - usually 'colouring in between the lines'. It may not mean keeping to the 'lines' at all - without artistic innovators we would have no Picasso! But sometimes the 'lines' (rules) are important . Enjoy those conversations with your student artists!
