Spoken English, Traditional Stories, Story writing

 Age Group: 7-11

Addresses requirements of Key Stage 2 Curriculum:

  • Adopting and sustaining a role, responding to others in role.

  • Identifying how language, structure, and presentation contribute to meaning in stories.

  • Use spoken language to develop understanding through speculating, imagining and exploring ideas.

This workshop examines the dark origins and themes of the traditional story of Red Riding Hood.  The children meet characters and work together to shape this traditional tale to include their own ideas and imaginations.


It is autumn, the worst time in all the year for wolves. But strong-minded Little Red insists she will go off through the wood to visit her sick grandmother.  From this moment on her life will never be the same again.

Children will:

  • Explore the themes and structure of a traditional story.

  • Contribute their own ideas to shape its structure, content and characters.

  • Practice problem solving in role from within the story.

“It helped a class who struggles through the year with ideas and imaginative thought to engage with story writing. There were at least 8 children who are usually so quiet but they came alive and joined in!” Year 6 Teacher, Lyndon Green Junior School.
