Hansel and Gretel
"I guess you think you know this story. You don’t. The real one’s much more gory. The phoney one, the one you know, Was cooked up years and years ago, and made to sound all soft and sappy Just to keep the children happy."
This half term we delve into the deep dark woods that hold the secrets to events that happened to two small children, Hansel and Gretel.
Our inspiration is an adaptation of the traditional tale by Neil Gaiman.
