Does everyone deserve kindness?

‘People’: The Big Bad Wolf, Goldilocks, The Gingerbread Man

Place: Story settings

Problem: The character’s reputation/judgement/bias

Possibilities: Listening to others/understanding others



This project explores a series of traditional tales (The three little pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man) as well as their alternative versions that play with the roles of the characters and challenge pre-established ideas. The narrative will follow the “baddies” from these stories and children will be encouraged to empathise with them and try to think what led them to make poor choices. We will try to connect with their feelings and not just judge them just by their actions. They will connect their ideas with the zones of regulation. 

Children will receive messages for these characters apologising for their mistakes and asking for forgiveness. We would debate together whether we should forgive them or not. In the last week of the term, children will be assigned the mission of finding the Gingerbread Man, who might seem naughty in the story, but who might feel scared and lost, so children are asked to find him and help him.
