We started the week by reading the story 'Whatever Next!' by Jill Murphy. The story is about a little bear who goes on an imaginary journey into space. Mrs Burton brought in a large cardboard box and we had lots of fun using it to retell the story . We pretended that the colander was a space helmet and the wellies were space boots. The cardboard box made and excellent rocket and we pretended to have a picnic on the moon.
Who knew learning could be so much fun!
On Wednesday and Thursday we used 'Tales Toolkit' to make up our own stories. We used our imaginations to think about the characters, the setting, a problem and then a happy ending. We wrote our ideas down on a story plan then used them to tell each other our stories.
