The story that links our work this week involves a lot of running. Can you guess? I'll give you a clue.
'Run, Run as fast as you can you can't catch me I'm the .................'
Know the answer - it is - 'The Gingerbread Man'
The Gingerbread Man is a Traditional story.
A traditional story or tale is a story that has been told and retold over and over again for many years and becomes a story that everyone knows also known as a fairy story.
The story of Jack and the Beanstalk which we listened to last week was a traditional story.
Can you think of any other story you might know that is a traditional story.?
Read the story
Different versions of the Gingerbread man story - very similar and always with the same ending.
But which do you prefer?
Can you write your own version with different characters or perhaps a different ending?
Perhaps in your story the Gingerbread man escapes!!!
