    Hi All
    I'm looking to pick your brains please. I am trying to get ahead with my long term planning and not find myself having to do a lot of last minute re-jigging just before my long writing task - last year's mistake.
    This year I am using the 2007 tasks (no, can't repeat last year, but with a bit more forward planning, as I have Yr R - 2 so the current Yr 2s did the other task last year).
    The long writing task is a transformation/adventure story about a pebble which leads to an adventure (I'm paraphrasing here, the actual wording is at school - sorry). If you know the dreaded Biff and Chip the pebble acts in the same way as the magic key (at least that is my reading of the instructions).
    Can any-one think of any other transformation/ adventure type stories? Obv we will look at the magic key stories but would like to read lots of other stimuli.
    All suggestions much appreciated.
