Hi everyone, I am an NQT teaching Year 1. We're currently doing the 'Stories about Fantasy Worlds' unit and have looked at Finding Nemo as an example of a story set in a fantasy world (I know not the best example but fitted in with other topic stuff...) I want the pupils to use the character of Nemo and the same setting but think of a new story whereby Nemo has a different problem which is then solved. Bit confused as to how I will structure this and wanted some advice on a few points. They will be planning their story on a story mountain so introduction, build up, problem, resolution and ending. Would I get them to act out their story first in groups (so have 4 groups - and each group decides their own story) and then they write it up on a Story Mountain the following day? Or other way around? How would I model planning and writing the first part of their story when each group's story is different, as normally used to planning a new story as a 'whole class', and therefore, modelling is easy as everyone is writing about the same thing. Sorry if sounds obvious. Have just got in a bit of a muddle!
