  10. homckeever have you managed to do your plan. have you thought of any inspiring ideas? i would love to hear about some as mine are just the same old ideas we do for every narrative topic. x
  11. Hi sunshinelea, no impressive ideas really, just going to use role/imaginative play, sequencing, etc. Going to pick books up tomorrow so can read text. xx
  12. How about the book Billy's Bucket?
    Lots of opportunity for drama and then writing.
  13. anyone any ideas cuz now i'm kinda stuck too :eek:)
  14. I'm starting off with Farmer Duck next week - post your e-mail and i'll foward my plan - will be writing a plan to help farmer duck, story hands to re-tell, alternative endings, speech bubbles, sorry letter from the farmer to duck.

    We are going to do Suddenly! the week after, then the Gruffalo and some work using the DVD of monster INc the week after, rather than a book.
  15. what is 'story hands'? i havent heard this before :eek:)

  18. You all have mail.

    Story hands are were the children draw around their hand and basically re-tell the story by drawing a little picture/writing key words in each finger. They just help children develop awarness that stories are patterned and focuses on the 'events' in stories. They can be used prior to writing as a story plan too. I guess it's another approach of doing the same thing.

    'Charcater pocket's are another idea I use - this encourages children to make an indepth examination of a charcter in a fun way! You ask the children to think about the contents of a characters coat pocket and why. This promotes some interesting discussions!
