Little Red is an established and popular programme inspired by the traditional tale of Red Riding Hood. This participatory drama provides an exciting story context for children to extend their spoken language skills, expand their vocabulary and explore the construction of and meaning behind this familiar tale.

The programme uses a range of accessible drama strategies to focus on key moments in the story. Working in and out of role the children help to construct an original version of the story shaped by their own feelings, ideas and imaginations.

The children are taken on a journey to Little Red’s home, where they experience the harsh realities of living in the forest, encounter new characters and must help Little Red make a decision that could change her life forever.

Little Red also links with the National Curriculum in English and SMSC by giving children the opportunity to practise critical analysis and discussion skills.
