We are going to be doing some writing on the traditional tale - Hansel and Gretel.

 

Read Anthony Browne's version of Hansel and Gretel. Ask an adult to read some sections of the story to you too. 

Task 1

You will be writing your story from the witches point of view. Use the Boxing Up grid to help you form your ideas and plan for your story.  

 

Look through the slides as you complete the grid and use the WAGOLL examples. Think about your language choices, using exciting adjectives and interesting verbs. Make sure each point isn't too long - this is just your plan to help structure your story!

Task 2

Using your Boxing Up and the WAGOLL on the slides, write the first two paragraphs of your traditional tale. Remember you are writing it from the witch's point of view. What was the witch doing when she saw Hansel and Gretel? How did she feel? Think about description and the success criteria from the previous lessons. 

Task 3

 

Using your Boxing Up and the WAGOLL on the slides, write the next three paragraphs of your

traditional tale. Your story should flow on from the previous paragraphs.

Remember you are writing it from the witch's point of view. How did she feel when she saw Hansel and Gretel nibbling at her house? How did she make herself seem nice? How can you show that she becomes nasty? Think about description and the success criteria from the previous lessons. 

Task 4

 

Using your Boxing Up and the WAGOLL on the slides, write the final paragraphs of your

traditional tale. Your story should flow on from the previous paragraphs and you are writing it from the witch's point of view.

Try to include some dialogue and use the examples to help with your speech punctuation. Make sure your story has an exciting ending!
