A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for Grimm Tales for Young and Old

¬£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: LKS2 / UKS2, Upper KS2

Year Group: Year 6

Author(s): Philip Pullman

Main Outcomes:

New ‘Grimm’ tale

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a three-week planning sequence which examines Grimm Tales and looks closely at the common characteristics which appear in many of them, before
eventually creating their own Grimm tale, drawing upon many of these to plan their own using a ‘Story path’ and ‘Character building’ activities. Children will incorporate planning for balancing dialogue and narrative within their new narratives and how to paragraph within longer pieces.

Synopsis of Text:

In this beautiful book of classic fairy tales, award-winning author Philip Pullman has chosen his fifty favourite stories from the Brothers Grimm and presents them in a'clear as water' retelling, in his unique and brilliant voice.

From the quests and romance of classics such as 'Rapunzel', 'Snow White' and 'Cinderella' to the danger and wit of such lesser-known tales as 'The Three Snake Leaves', 'Hans-my-Hedgehog' and 'Godfather Death', Pullman brings the heart of each timeless tale to the fore, following with a brief but fascinating commentary on the story's background and history. In his introduction, he discusses how these stories have lasted so long, and become part of our collective storytelling imagination.

These new versions show the adventures at their most lucid and engaging yet. Pullman's Grimm Tales of wicked wives, brave children and villainous kings will have you reading, reading aloud and rereading them for many years to come.
