    Surely the activity is Adult led and why not? There should be a balance between CI &AI
  2. I'm guessing that SMT have asked for an exciting lesson (ours say 'wow' lessons ... yuk.)
    I'm wondering if your idea would excite them enough. There's nothing wrong with changing the end of a story, but it's pretty run of the mill. Also most children won't have the stamina to write the whole story with a different ending, if that's what you are suggesting. Do you know the class?
    You can do lots of CP stuff around most trad tales - think role play, dancing, making models etc. and the whole point with CP is that it lends itself to CI learning so you don't need for children to be doing activities connected to the theme of any adult-directed input - they choose what to do themselves.
    Then you could have a focus group doing writing or telling stories (for this age group, telling the story is an essential part of the learning process which might or might not lead to writing).
