NARRATIVE - Giants and Fairies (KS2)
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.
