Little Red Riding Hood and The Wolf  by Roald Dahl


Today we looked closely at this picture and wondered who she was.


She is Little Red Riding Hood - but how does she differ to the one you know?







Then we read through the beginning Of Roald Dahl's revolting rhyme and worked out that the rhyming patterns was pairs of lines rhyming - rhyming couplets.


As soon as Wolf began to feel
That he would like a decent meal,
He went and knocked on Grandma's door.
When Grandma opened it, she saw
The sharp white teeth, the horrid grin,
And Wolfie said, ‘May I come in?’
Poor Grandmamma was terrified,
‘He's going to eat me up!’ she cried.
And she was absolutely right.
He ate her up in one big bite.

Our activity was to read through the rest of the poem and try to work out what the missing words could be - they needed to make sense!
