Click on the link below to listen to the traditional tale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’
Watch the story up to the point where little red riding hood meets the wolf in the woods.
Write down what Little Red Riding Hood’s Mum said to her. Remember to use speech marks.
e.g “Little Red Riding Hood you must go straight to Grandma’s house.” Said her Mum.
Next write down what the wolf said to Little Red Riding Hood in the woods.
eg “Good morning, where are you going today?” Said the Wolf.
Now write down what Little Red Riding Hood said back to the wolf.
Eg “ My Grandma is ill so I am taking her some cake and honey.” Said Little Red Riding Hood.
I have added a link to a short cartoon that explains how and why we use speech marks.
Watch the story ‘ Little Red Riding Hood’ Can you write three sentences that explain what happened when the wolf arrived at Grandmas house?
eg The wolf opened the door and chased Grandma out of bed. Then he put on Grandma’s clothes and got into her bed. He waited for Little Red Riding Hood to arrive.
Write down the conversation between Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. Revisit the speech mark cartoon to help you remember how to punctuate speech.
“Grandma, what big eyes you have.” Said Little Red Riding Hood.
“All the better for seeing you my dear.” Growled the wolf.
Write three sentences that explain what happened at the end of the story.
eg The wolf chased after Little Red Riding Hood. The woodcutter heard her scream and chased the wolf into the mountains. The wolf was never seen again. They lived happily ever after.
