Educational objectives of the programme
The stories we used to listen to before going to sleep and tell before they fell asleep.

Fairy tales at schoolFairy tales, wonderful tales, cultural relics, have survived time.
The definition of the tale is complex. Often cruel, it reflects a time when scaring children at night before going to sleep was an educational method.
Fascinating to analyse our ancestral fears and anxieties in the face of the unknown.
But the marvellous tale is also an open door to the imagination.
Telling a fairy tale is like planting seeds in the child's mind (1).

Educational activities on children's stories"Little Red Riding Hood" has had many versions: with Charles Perrault, the story ends with the wolf's victory, and with the Grimm brothers, the heroine is safe.
But what if it all happened differently... Get to work! Imagine new adventures and a surprising ending to this popular tale.
From the film "Sleeping Betty", Cinderella revisited, list the parodies and diversions of the attributes of the world of the traditional tale (drawbridge door, hoover broom...).
A spectacular ending for Jack and the Beanstalk?
An inconceivable ending for The Wolf and the 7 Kids?
Imagine the adventures of a new fairy tale!
