    Starting a build up to a big write with year 6 where they need to rewrite a story in role as the villain

    just wondered are there any texts I can use as examples? Fairy tales told from the villains point of view ? Any videos I could show?

    any ideas would be really helpful, struggled to find any resources for this

    There's a version of 3 little pigs written from the wolf's point of view but I can't remember the name.

    I could possibly write a story for you based on the Three Little Pigs, Red Riding Hood or something of the sort. I'm a published author, though NOT, Not, Not (as yet) for children :)

    Don't think this will help with what you're looking for, but we read 'Stone Cold' by Robert Swindells as a class novel in Year 6 last year. It's a split narrative, with the villain telling his part as well as the 'hero' telling his. Kids were totally hooked.

    Confessions of an Ugly Sister - Gregory Maguire (who also wrote Wicked which works for your brief too)

    My favourite would be Grendel - John Gardener but it works better if the class have done some work of Beowulf. Would appeal more if your class is boy-heavy.

    I think there's a Peter Pan based one too from Captain's Hook's POV
