No sleep for the hungry


One night, when too hungry to sleep, Hansel and Gretel heard their stepmother convincing their father to leave them in the forest the next morning. "They will never find their way home, and we'll be rid of them," she said.

Why do you think the stepmother said this? How do you think the children felt?
What would be your advice to Hansel and Gretel?

    1. Read the question carefully Hadnan. How do you think they would have felt listening to the conversation. The step-mother wants to abandon them in the forest.

  12. I think Hansel and Gretel are feeling upset,starving and disappointing that there not looking after them properly like real parents . I think the stepmother said the children to leave because the dad is poor so he doesn't have a lot of money to buy food for the children.If I was Hansel or Gretel I would do be looking for food or money. If I was Hansel or Gretel and I was at the cold bed I would be cold and bored in the middle of the night.

      I think the children are staving because there terible step-mother only gave them a bit of bread and after she will go to work and leave them in the woods and she won't have to look after them any more and she can have the whole house for her self and she dosent have to feed the children and she can have all the food she wants.

  24. The stepmother want to take the children into the woods beacause if the children have food and it finish it will be the stepmother and dad that will be hungry and die. And they won,t have to look after children just there self and they will go to work the children won't know the way home when they get money they will leave children in the woods forever and die in the night the stepmother said we can leave them in the woods the dad said no because he said they are our children the animals could eat them up

  25. The step mother is very crool because she just wants to get rid of the children so she can buy things for herself. The step mother wonts to get things for herself and she's dusent wont to look after the children like a good mother would. I think hansel and gretel are feeling sad upset and frightening. I think they are terrerfighd. I will tell them to be the best kids in the world then maybe she will look after you like she is supposed do. They need to call the police so the police can tell her not to leave them in the Forrest all alone. They need to tell there dad not to make the mum leave them in the Forrest alone. I will tell them to ask the dad to kick the step mum outside and tell the step to never come back. They need to ask the dad if there actually going to get a little bit of a bread and if he said yes then they need to leave the house and beg people for money. They need to run and keep running until there tired.

Hansel and Gretel Must of felt very worid about their selfs ore have been starving for years with out eating any food ore drinking anything like water if Hansel and Gretel don't eat food their going to starve and die with out serving.

  29. I think the mother wants to do this to the kids because the step mother wants to eat by her self food and not wasting lots of money. I think the kids fell terrifid because there mom will leave them in the forist by them self and they will only get a little pes of bread and after they will be so starving. I think at the cold night they will be very scard because that night they herd there mom say at the morning we should take the kids to the forist . tonight and the dad said we should not take them to the forist tonight because they would be very very scared and they will totally be very starving.

  38. In my opinion I think that the stepmother was trying to convince their dad to leave them in the woods because she is a wicked stepmother,so she is selfish and that means that she must want more food for herself.
    I think the children felt scared as well as angry and upset because the stepmother wants them to leave.
    My advice to the children would be to persuade their dad to let the stepmother leave and ban her form his house.
