Explore the 'fairy' tales of Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk, looking at characters and structure. Using the visual stimulus of our giant and fairy images, pupils plan and write their own tales. Alternatively, pupils can write an extra chapter for the story of Jack and the Beanstalk or a newspaper report.
What makes a good 'fairy' tale? This unit explores story heroes and villains, using the examples of fairies and giants. Pupils compare two 'fairy' tales: Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk, noting features of the genre. They then write their own tale, using images of giants and fairies as a visual stimulus. To finish the unit, pupils take a look at a tale from the viewpoint of a different character and rewrite part or all of a story from this angle.
