Beauty and the Beast
stepping inside the story.
Children have considered what were the crucial events in the story of Beauty and the Beast. The class agreed that the merchant picking the rose, the breaking of the promise, the magic mirror and the kiss were probably the most important events.Children explored the consequences of these actions and how the story might have been different without any one of these elements.All the class were very mature in their responses to key thematic questions such as , " Could you imagine loving someone so much that you gave up everything for them". Through drama children were able to explore the possibilities of characters changing in stories and compare this to real life where people are also not simply , " good" or ," bad" people.
