Good Morning!

Welcome to a new week 


English - This week we will be looking at alternative traditional tales which are stories where the writer has changed some parts of the original traditional tale but kept the feel and style of the original. Today, we would like you to watch and listen to these videos and then choose one to concentrate on by recording the similarities and differences between itself and the original. There is a PDF document below for you to use, or you can complete the activity in your English books. Please have a look at the PDF though to help you understand the task and how to record it. Once you have completed the task, you can take a photo of your work and send it in via email or upload it to your purple mash work file for us to have a look at. Enjoy!
