This half term we have been spending a lot of time practising our story telling skills. We have already enjoyed dressing up as our favourite characters for World Book Day and creating some fantastic story boxes. The children clearly spent a long time planning and creating their story boxes and have had the opportunity to share them in class and retell the story to their friends.
Over the coming weeks we are planning to use some fun resources to create familiar stories in class and to encourage the children to retell them using interesting language and full sentences to explain what is happening. We introduce some interesting words to the children each week and hope they will be more confident using them in playful storytelling activities.
Please remember to share any videos or photographs of your children retelling some of their favourite stories at home. We would love to share the videos with the other children in class.
