In their homeroom class the children have been reading lots of different stories; talking about the plot and predicting what will happen, discussing the themes and the characters; their physical appearance, thoughts and feelings.
Through this, we have described the elements of the story; that they usually introduce the characters and the setting first, then have a problem followed by a solution and an ending.
We have been retelling the stories through lots of different means - puppet shows, oral retelling, role-playing and drawing cartoons. This has inspired some wonderfully creative stories written by the children!
