The aim of today’s lesson is for the children to work out why characters say and do things.
Explain that you want to find out all about the wolf and Little Red Riding Hood and what they are feeling and thinking, so you are going to ask them some questions. The children are to pretend to be the wolf and Little Red Riding Hood and give the answers to the questions.
Show the first picture.
Ask why the wolf was cross, why he licked his lips, why did he smile, why did he dash away and what was his plan? Encourage the children to answer in complete sentences and rephrase your child’s answer if necessary.
Show the second picture.
Explain that your child is now Little Red Riding Hood. Say how the s tory was very exciting and how brave she / he has been to rescue Grandma.
Ask why did she tread on the wolf’s tail, why did she hug grandma, what did you notice about the wolf’s legs as he ran away, on the way home why did you stick to the path and what lessons did you learn from this adventure? Again, encourage the children to answer in complete sentences and rephrase your child’s answer if necessary.
