We began the half term with the story Willy the Wimp, the role play was transformed into a gym and the children learnt how to be brave and strong The children told me that to be brave and strong you needed to have courage. They wrote letters to Willy the Wimp giving him advise on how he can become brave and strong like them.
We then moved to the story of Halibut Jackson, in this story the role play was transformed into a drapery. Children were able to design their own clothes and had lots of fun dressing up. Halibut Jackson was shy and he didn’t like to stand out. The children wrote invitations and had their very own tea party. They then wrote their own stories in the style of Halibut Jackson about a character called Cod Benson.
We were really impressed with their story writing, here are a few examples of some pages from their stories.
