Planning Ideas Yr 2 Story Telling into Writing Little Red Riding Hood Nov 07


As a class start to learn The True Story of Little Red Riding Hood with actions.

Guided and indp work focus on retelling using drama/puppets, looking at other versions in books and ICT.
Eg T could work with group to act out story with puppets.
TA could do Pie Corbett Copy Cat activity using and phrases from the True Story with children who might need an extra Sp and Lan focus. Could discuss any unusual vocab with these children such as delicious or jaws. Could orally try to put these words into new sentences.

Use plenaries to eg

  • recap the story

  • intro drama activities eg as phone calls or journalists from P. C. pg 8 for children in groups on subsequent days.


Children see Teacher model creation of story map and use it as a prompt, along with the story map props.

Look at IWB LRRH. Discuss differences between ‘True’ story and other known versions. What has changed? What is the same?

As above introducing some more written activities such as:
  • List differences between the versions perhaps focusing on words and phrases to describe character.

  • Sentence doctor

  • Draw characters from the story and create speech or thought bubbles for them.

  • Have a basket writing frame to write their favourite goodies in.

  • Alliteration around names.
