Fractured Fairytales

We are getting very excited about our production, Once Upon a Mattress. This is a fractured fairytale based on the story of The Princess and the Pea. A fractured fairytale is a well-known fairytale that changes the setting, plot, characters or even the perspective. We have been writing these in 8C. Nadia and Lottie used Storybird to publish their fractured fairytales. Have you ever used Storybird before. We think it is a great tool for inspiring us in our writing. It also works well when writing collaborative stories.

Can you work out which fairytales these stories are based on?


  1. 8C We will be in touch but just wanted to let you know that our Selwyn House and Christchurch Quiz is up online on our class page, if someone could have a look at the questions and let us know if there are any changes we'd appreciate it.

  2. Hello

    I made the quiz about your school and Christchurch Carls Jr. is a little bit like Dennys but the burgers are MASSIVE greasy and not that nice ( the man of steel burger would not fit in my mouth!!!). I found info on your pig on the website it said its name and that it will eat the food scraps and it is an enviro agent.
