This week we read the traditional fairy story, Cinderella and then read a different version of the story called, Prince Cinders. Prince Cinders is about a boy who has three mean brothers and the story ends with him marrying Princess Lovelypenny and ‘living happily ever after!’ There are many similarities between the two stories, but also some big differences! I am sure the children can tell you some of them.
We read the book, but then we also enjoyed the short video of the story. The video again differs slightly from the book. The class enjoyed the story so much they have asked me to put a link to it on the blog!
The book is read in this video.

Next week we begin our work on Cinderella. We will explore different versions of the story, some from different countries, a version were the main character is a boy and an American version called ‘Wheelchair Cinderella’ about a disabled girl. They are all brilliant stories, but we will discover that they all have a very similar sequence of events. Here are some links to Cinderella stories on line. There are also some free apps with the Cinderella story.(Click on the images)
In Maths we are going to be learning about giving change. Here are some interactive games to help you practise the skills we will be learning.
