Fairy Tales in Space

As part of this term's reading programme we have been working in small groups of four children to compose some Space stories. Each group had to pick a traditional tale that we had read last term, and then write a similar story set in Space!!! The children shared their ideas and took it in turns to scribe them in some big books. Then they drew some illustrations to go with their writing. The final step was recording their stories and remembering to use clear voices. We hope you enjoy listening to our work!

Moonerella

This group based their story on "Cinderella." What differences and similarities can you find?
