    Thank you very much for offering your own ideas for advice.
    I'm a bit unclear about your objectives though - with the first example is it your intention that the children re-tell the story orally or in writing? How will you manage all of them if it's orally?
    With the second one, I don't see how they can be writing sentences if they're writing a poem.
  2. Hi,
    I didn't want to put too much detail so apologies if it is a little unclear. With the first it would be orally retelling in pairs briefly if time then moving children on to do a new story plan using the structure of the one we have shared. So changing events/characters etc. Obj would be to plan a new story. I think you are right about the oral retelling though and am leaning towards leaving that out as there isn't time.
    With the second I would ask chn to note ideas on post-its, model improving it with shared writing and using success criteria then asking them to write whole phrases/sentences ready to put together for a class poem to read at the end.
    Thanks for your help.
