Traditional fairy tales have been told for hundreds of years and many have been rewritten. Have you ever wished the characters were more like you? Or people in your community? This is exactly what Konnie Huq has made into reality with her new book Fearless Fairy Tales.
In this teaching sequence, children will explore fairy tales and their themes and think of ways that these could be changed to bring them into the twenty-first century. Extracts from the podcast are suggested to introduce each section of the teaching sequence, providing an excellent way to connect the things children are learning with the work of a professional author and illustrator.
The pack includes teacher notes, a PowerPoint, worksheets and beautifully designed elements for a working wall, and has been exclusively created to be used with episode 25 of the Author In Your Classroom podcast – a virtual ‘author visit’ you can share with children whenever you like, absolutely free!
