Hansel and Gretel | A Fairy Tale

Activity One

Draw pictures to help you remember the order of the story and label them. Who are the main characters? Where is the story set? 


Activity Two 

Write a list of questions you would ask the characters. Remember some of the key question words and your question marks at the end. 

For example: Why did the children go in the house? What woods did they go into


Activity Three

Design your own tasty house full of treats. What would it look like? Draw a picture and write sentences underneath  to describe it using adjectives. Can you describe it so well, it would make Miss Hyde hungry? 

The fountain in the garden was full of velvety, smooth, milk chocolate that poured down gently. The roof was covered in gooey, pink marshmallow and chewy, sugared hearts that glistened in the sunlight. 


You can use some of the adjectives above in your own writing if you wish :). 

Activity Four

Write the story of Hansel and Gretel. Use your story map to help you. Remember capital letters at the start of a sentence and for names. Full stops at the end of a sentence, and finger spaces in between. Use the sound mats on the phonics pages to support spelling. 

Maybe you could publish this on Purple Mash using the animated stories we learned in Spring. 


Activity Five

Complete the sentences using the conjunctions and or because.

Hansel and Gretel went walking in the woods and...

The duck ate the breadcrumbs because...

The children became lost because...

The lady opened the door and...

The house was made of sweets because...


Can you think of any of your own?
