English – Writing
We will introduce the children to the story of Hansel & Gretel, in order to do this we will watch Lotte Reiniger’s version of Hansel and Gretel.

The children will storymap Hansel & Gretel in  order to familiarise themselves with the story and in order to understand the structure of the story.

We will also explore character descriptions, focusing on both personality and appearance.  Children will have a guided reading session based on the story of Hansel & Gretel.
