Writing weekly focus – Creative writing.
Our key text this half term is The Lost Happy Endings by Carol Ann Duffy. The main character is Jub who lives in her cosy hole in a forest.
One of the key lines in the book is 'But tonight there were to be no happy endings!'.
This week we are going to try to write endings to some of the well known fairy tales we have looked at before but without the happy endings.
What usually happens at the end of a Fairy tale? What happened to Little Red Riding hood? What happened to Cinderella? What makes these 'happy endings'?
Why do you think these stories have happy endings? Do you think a story needs to have a happy ending?
Watch this video of Princess Smartypants. Its not a tradition tale of a princess but will help you to start thinking about how you can change a story!
What is different about the princess in Princess Smartypants compared to the princesses we usually read about?
Now listen to these 2 poems by John Agard which look at different versions of Fairy tales.
Your story ending doesn't need to be sad. Perhaps it could be funny.
Imagine if the glass slipper did not fit Cinderella. What would she have done?
What if Grandma had eaten the wolf when he arrived dresses as Goldilocks?
Choose one of the traditional tales below:
Little Red Riding Hood
Hansel and Gretel
Sleeping Beauty or
Write out your story using as much of the original you need to. You only need to change the ending.
You can use one of the templates attached if you need a bit more support.
