– To act out their favourite story

– Design their own fairy tale creatures

– An ending to my favourite fairy tale story

– Label pictures

-Write a list of characters and props

– To create character profiles on the characters in the Fairy tale stories

–  To retell stories in the correct sequence

– Explore and experimenting with sounds and words by writing simple sentences.

– We will be practising playing in our role-plays with other children, understanding that we play in ways which respect each other, and listen to each other’s ideas.

– Explore emotions and feelings in stories and empathising with characters.
