Little_Red_Riding_Hood_-_J._W._SmithAccessible to many different levels of study, I have worked on this topic with pre-schoolers where we simply tell the story and enjoy the sounds of English through to a classe of 2nde €uropéenne who took a new look at a fairy story favourite, interpreting in ways they had never considered before and then acting out the story with finger puppets for some Back to Childhood Again fun.
