KS1 English - Little Red Riding Hood - Episode 4

4: Stay on the path

Red Riding Hood sets off for Grandma's house feeling excited. As she goes through the gate and into the woods she remembers her Ma's instruction to 'stay on the path at all times'. But as she skips happily along there is so much to look at and listen to...

Suddenly she hears a noise and - feeling like she is being watched - she quickly turns around, but there is nothing or no-one there. At that moment she sees some fairies. Curiosity gets the better of her and she leaves the path to investigate. But as she gets closer the fairies suddenly dart away and then Red Riding Hood feels a tap on her shoulder.

She swings around to see an enormous, hairy creature with a straw hat on its head looking at her with a rather strange smile. But who is it..?
