Hansel and Gretel Workshop

During this half term our topic in Year 1 has been Enchanted Woodlands. We have been learning about Fairy Tales and Traditional Tales.

On Monday we had a workshop about Hansel and Gretel.

First we took part in some warm up games like the ‘Opposite Game.’

We then listened to the story of Hansel and Gretel and joined in with some movements.

We then acted out some freeze frames. We thought about how the characters would be feeling how we could show this through our bodies and face. Can you guess which part of the story our freeze frames are from?

We then acted out cooking our own candy house. What would you make your house out of?

Finally we played a freeze game. The every time the evil witch turned her back we could creep forward, when she turned around she could eat us and we would be sent back to the start. It was good fun!
