In our school we had two events which we called "Travel to the Fairyland". The first one was only for our pupils and the second one was for invited guests from other primary schools in our town including special needs school.
The events were based on 5 chosen stories: Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Ugly Duckling, Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel.There were songs and dances and lots of fairy tale theme activities.

Special train took the children to the Fairyland.

Children were wearing beautiful costumes.
They listened to the stories.

They make the fairy tale puzzles.

They built a pig`s house made of blocks.

and of papers.

They wrote a healthy menu into Little Red Riding Hood Basket.

Had a competition in eating gingebread from the wicked witch`s house.

They were dancing in a big pond with ugly duckling.

And Cinderella met Little Red Riding Hood.



Carnival this year was extremely successful and colorful. There has been a school dance on the topic fairy tales and legends Our pupils proved themselves to be creative, inventive and hardworking.
We've had princesses and princes....


... wolf and seven goats...


...Peter Pan with with his crew....


.... and many national fairy tale characters.

There was Kekec, our national fairytale hero.


He lives in the mountains, he's a herdsman. He's happy, brave, curious, nosy, teasing, clever and adventurous. He likes singing and playing his whistle and zither. He's also good hearted and helps people.
He is in constant adventures with his 2 opponent: Pehta and Bedanec. Pehta is an old lady who collects herbs in the mountains and kidnaps children to work for her but also wants to cure them. She doesn't know how to show her love towards children and feels rejected by the world. And Bedanec is a wild hunter who also kidnaps children to work for him, scrub his feet and play music for him. Kekec wants him to stop chasing wild animals.


Listen to Kekec's song!

Then there was Muri the cat with his friends.

Muri is Slovenian most famous cat!

My favorite Muri the cat song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bka57f-OQdU.

We mustn't forget Martin Krpan! The most powerful Slovene. He smuggled salt from Adriatic sea through Slovenia to Vienna. One day when the roads were covered with snow he picked up his mare and made way for emperor John's carriage.  He was so impressed by Martin Krpan that he asked him to come  to Vienna  to fight a brutal warrior Brdavs. Martin Krpan made a bat out of Linden tree and defeated the evil Brdavs. He became a hero. He was given a permission to transport salt.


Krpan fighting Brdavs!

Here you can see Mojca Pokrajculja with her friends.


One day when she was sweeping, Mojca Pokrajculja found a coin and bought a pot. In the evening she lay in a pot when several animals knocked on her doors and asked for shelter ( a bear, a fox, a rabbit, a deer and a wolf) for it was very cold outside. She was good hearted and she let everyone in. During the night the fox woke up and complained that her tummy hurts. Mojca Pokrajculja sent her to the kitchen to make herself some tea. But the fox found honey and licked the whole bowl.
In the morning Mojca Pokrajcuja discovered that all the honey was gone! Animals got into a fight about who stole the honey. They have decided to lay on the grass to see who licked it. When all the animals fell asleep, the fox sneaked to the rabbit and put some honey on his mouth. When the animals woke up, they were furious! They 've started to chase the poor rabbit! He ran so fast that he broke his front legs. And from that time rabbits' front legs are much shorter than his hind legs.

I am sure you will recognise this group!

No? Well it's Snow White and her seven dwarfs. Snow White was feeling a bit shy, so she is standing at the back. And a small hint- she is actually a he ( you must look carefully, she is standing between a Prince a n one of the dwarfs).

Art works based on fairy tales

Dżesika age 7
Julek age 7
 For last few weeks pupils in Poland have read fairy tales and the topic was an inspiration for a lot of art works. Pictures coloured with crayons were the most popular but they also used paints to paint Cinderella at the ball. 

They designed Cinderella`s dress. 

Patrycja age 8

 And made delicious cottage of a wicked witch. They built it of gingerbread, cakes, sweets, jelly and chocolate. Then they played Hansel and Gretel and ate the cottage starting with the rooftop :-)

Miłosz age 10

As much as pupils enjoyed listening to old, traditional fairy tales they also had deeper lessons about life, love, good and bad.
