Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

As part of our topic ‘Once Upon a Time,’ we wrote our own version of ‘Little Red Riding Hood.’ We looked at how fairy tales are usually split into four sections: the beginning, a problem faced by the characters, the solution to the problem and the ending. Working in groups, we each took a section of the story to rewrite. Here are our combined efforts – we think they’re pretty fantastic!

The beginning ...

Once upon a time there was a little boy called Little Pink Riding Pig. He lived in a brick house with one of the three little pigs. One day, he took a basket of food to his mummy pig for a picnic. Mummy pig lived on the other side of the rain forest.

The problem …

Mummy was actually a crazy alien who wanted to eat Little Pink Riding Pig and the wolf. In her cottage, she placed a trap above the front door. When Little Pink Riding Pig came in, a bucket of slime fell on her head and she was caught in Mummy’s wire trap. Mummy abducts Little Pink Riding Pig. Oh no, however will she escape?

The solution …

A goblin tries to smash down the house of Little Pink Riding Pig. A builder spots the goblin and swaps his hammer for a toy one. Spiderman appears and puts the goblin in his magic web, stopping him from causing any mischief. Suddenly, the goblin escapes and manages to smash down the house. Luckily, Spiderman catches him and alien Mummy, and the builder rebuilds Little Pink Riding Pig’s house.

The ending …

A magical crab pinches the goblin and alien Mummy - killing them outright. Once the goblin and alien Mummy are dead, Little Pink Riding Pig and the Three Little Pigs go and enjoy a lovely picnic in the woods. They all lived happily ever after.

The end
