Throughout our English lessons we will be looking at a range of Twisted Fairy Tales. During this time children will have to opportunity to take one of their favorite Fairy stories and add their very own twist. Some of the tales we will be looking at are:
Rupunzle, Rupunzle, Wash your Hair!
Jack and the Baked Bean Stalk
The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig.
We will also be writing our very own instructions on how to make a healthy smoothie or drink.
In Oaks class children are expected to read (or be read to) and have their book signed 3 times a week. If you can question them about the book once they have read, this will help them in their writing and reading in school.
Some questions to ask your children during reading at home:
What are the main events in the book?
How are the characters feeling in the story?
Have you read any books with a similar storyline?
What do you think is going to happen? Why do you think that?
If you met any of the characters in the book what would you ask them?
Are there any words or phrases in the book that excite you?
It may also be useful to identify any words your child is not sure of and look up the meaning as this will enrich your child's vocabulary.
