Into the Forest: traditional tales (KS1)

£107 Save £36.80

Our selection of 20 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 '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

Bethan Woollvin interviewed by Madelyn Travis

Bethan Woollvin won The Macmillan Prize for illustrating in 2014 for her arresting version of Little Red Riding Hood. It is inspired by her own childhood response to the story: she didn't believe any little girl would be taken in by the wolf. After graduating from Anglia Ruskin University with a First Class Degree in Illustration, Bethan moved to London, where she continues to create extraordinary books. Bethan took some time out from her busy schedule to chat to Madelyn Travis.
