This week we have begun our unit on Traditional Tales and have begun to look at some of the works of Han Christian Anderson. This week we have been focusing on the story of 'The Little Match Girl'. A lot of the children were familiar with this story already. We used this text to look at how images and pictures can convey emotions and how the text supported this.
To finish the week, the children were asked to write an alternative ending to the story. I was pleased to see how well the children thought about this and the style of ending they wanted for the story and then tried to write in a similar style using lots of connectives and interesting vocabulary.
