I am really hoping that you kind people will be able to help a very stressed NQT. I am really struggling with my traditional tales planning as l just do not know where l should begin. I had planned to use the book Mr Wolf and the Pancakes with my year 2 class as it seems they have already looked at many of the more obvious tales like Jack and the Beanstalk, Red Riding Hood etc. I thought t would also be seasonally appropriate adn it would give us a chance to make pancakes. I thought we would begin by making a story map to ensure that we sequence the events correctly and the children become really familar with the story. I have done so much searching for ideas of planning that l think l am just completely numbed and l don't know how to best approach the planning. I know that l need to look at chracter, plot and setting, but in what order? I thought l would also look at Mama Panya's pancakes by way of a contrast. Would that be a good idea or just too confusing? Sorry to sound so wet, but l am just going ropund in circles after hours of searching and l would be so grateful for some help. Thank you.
