Year 3 have been learning the story of 'The Papaya That Spoke'. Unlike other stories that we have explored, we have been using actions to help remember the story so that we can retell it orally. We have drawn story maps using simple pictures and only a few key words so that we can map out and plan the events quickly meaning we can add greater detail to our stories when we actually write them.
Our work started with a favourite session - tasting!!! By trying papaya we were able to generate a wordbank of interesting words which we have then tried using in our story telling.
