Year 3



Our first topic is entitled ‘Fab Fables’. This is a four week English-led project based on Aesop’s Fables. The children will be exploring the features of fables and their morals and depicting these through a puppet presentation. You are invited to share the children’s learning on

Tuesday 9th October 2018.



A fable is a short story, typically with animals as characters, conveying a moral.

The characters are usually represented as animals with human characteristics. For example, ‘The Lion and Mouse’ and ‘The Hare and the Tortoise’.


The home learning project for this unit is to re-tell a favourite fable using your own chosen creative format; this could be a series of photographs, a play, illustrations in the form of a storyboard or cartoon, voice or video recordings or writing. This should be brought into school by Friday 5th October.


Suggested schedule:

Week 1: Read a range of fables.

Week 2: Plan the format and layout of your fable.

Week 3: Create your chosen fable.


Success criteria:

  • correctly sequenced

  • interesting to watch, look at, read or listen to

  • include a moral


    We look forward to seeing your fables.
