This Unit covers ‘Traditional and fairy stories’. Before you start the lessons below, it is suggested you take 15–30 minutes each day for four or five days to read other traditional stories, including some from different cultures, to enrich the children’s experience of the genre. You could conclude these stories by asking some of the following questions: Who was the story about? Where did it take place? How did it start? What happened in the middle of the story? How did it end? What do you think the most important event was? You should also set out a display of appropriate books and tapes that the children may look at, listen to, read to themselves or borrow to share at home.
