The Gingerbread Man

Sapphire class retelling The Gingerbread Man

This week in English we have been looking at a range of Traditional tales and identity the features. Here are some of the features:

Raynie- One feature is that they have talking animals such as The Gingerbread Man talks.

Amber- They all have a bad character. 

Oliver- All the tales start with Once upon time... 

As a whole class we voted for which book we would like to retell ourselves and we picked 'The Gingerbread Man.' We then retold the story using key phrases and actions. We have also written a letter to the old lady explaining how we felt when we came out of the oven and why we ran away. 

In Art we have been designing our own Gingerbread Man which we will use in our own stories next week.
