Twisted Tales

Children from across the Trust have been working with Storyhouse Theatre in Chester to develop a Twisted Tales display.

The display was open for viewing during the Easter holidays and featured work from children throughout the schools based on well-known fairy tales, but with a twist.

Some children have explored the role of women within fairytales and used this as the basis for writing about the women’s suffrage movement (which is celebrating its centenary this year).

Others have looked at how characters such as wolves and giants are portrayed, and whether this is accurate.

Some of the younger children looked at alternative versions of fairytales, using them as inspiration to write recipes for porridge, diaries, instructions and their own stories.
