Hansel and Gretel teachers’ notes

Learn about children’s book illustrator Emma Chichester Clark and find exciting ways to use traditional tales to look at sentence construction. 

We take a look at Emma Chichester Clark’s life and works and take a look at some of the stories she’s been illustrating for Michael Morpurgo. Use Emma’s work, ‘Hansel and Gretel’ to talk about the use of woodlands in traditional tales.

We also look at retelling stories and investigate how traditional tales can change over time and how retelling a story can either add or take away vital detail.

Use alongside the ‘Hansel and Gretel’ image from our Woodlands topic.
