Year 6 Fables

In Year 6, we have been reading traditional fables, learning how they are constructed and then made our own versions.


Have a look at the Year 6 class page for the final versions that some of the children would like to share extracts from their fables with you! Here's one that Morgan wrote, as an example.




The Squirrel and the Eagle.


One blinding, sunny day, an intelligent Squirrel saw the tastiest apple that he had ever seen, but it was guarded by an Eagle. The Squirrel had thought of a plan so, the Squirrel climbed up the tree to talk to the Eagle.


The Squirrel talked to the Eagle and said, “My, my you have magnificent wings, will you hover in the air for me? “So the Eagle hovered in the air, but he accidently picked up the apple and dropped it onto the ground and when that had happened he was furious at himself and the Squirrel.


The Squirrel picked up the apple and rushed to his house at the other side of the forest with a smile on his face and he said, “Thank you for this tasty apple!”


The Eagle was so furious that he tracked the Squirrel for months and he had finally found him so the Eagle ate the Squirrel for his lunch.




Don’t trust anything that is as smart as you.
