KS1 English: Little Red Riding Hood - Part 3
3: Cake for Grandma
Red Riding Hood and her Ma decide to cheer Grandma up by making her a picnic. Ma sets about making the sandwiches while Red Riding Hood skips off to the village shop to buy ingredients for a cake.
She arrives to find Mrs Midgley, the shopkeeper, feeling very dozy. She tells Red Riding Hood of strange noises from the woods that had kept her up all night. Red Riding Hood says she's sure it was nothing to worry about and returns home to bake the cake.
Ma is upstairs tidying, so Red Riding Hood makes a start mixing the cake ingredients together. Then suddenly she hears a crash from the room above! She rushes upstairs to find Ma has twisted her ankle and wont be able to walk to Grandma's house.
Red Riding Hood still wants to visit Grandma and decides to make the trip on her own. She's knows the way well enough by now and is sure everything will be fine...
