Traditional Tales: Into the Forest (5 - 7 years)

£103 Save £26.83

Our selection of  traditional stories for KS1 has been chosen to extend children's repertoire of traditional stories and also to introduce them to different versions of the same story. The stories selected have clear structures, for instance 'the home-away-home' or 'pattern of three', that children will be able to adopt in their own storytelling and writing. This selection includes some straightforward retellings of traditional versions, so that children have a firm grounding in the stories that will enable them to appreciate the humour in the many contemporary versions such as Leigh Hodgkinson's 'Goldilocks and Just the One Bear'.

We have also included some innovative stories that have taken traditional fairy tales and characters as the basis for creating something wholly originally such as Hilary Robinson's 'More Mixed-Up Fairy Tales' and Michael Rosen's 'Dear Fairy Godmother'. The Secret Diary Scrapbook series provides a great starting point for a class project that can be used with any traditional tales,

For children who are not familiar with the repertoire of traditional tales, we recommend our introductory pack.
