We will have fun taking a closer look at some of our most loved Fairy Tales, including much loved traditional tales as well as a modern day Fairy Tale. The children will get to know the characters and relate their lives to their own. We will look at Three of a Kind with the Three Bears, the Three Little Pigs and the Three Billy Goats Gruff. Then we will go into the Woods with Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and the Gruffalo. We will end our term with the oldest story of all, The Nativity.
