22 April 2016

This week, the children of Year 3 have thoroughly enjoyed allowing their creative juices to flow and innovate their traditional tales!

  • Y3 Students
  • Y3 Girl
  • Y3 Boy

Over the past week, the children have been learning the traditional Chinese tale of the Monkey and the Moon. As a class, we created a story map to help guide us through our oral retelling of the story. This week, having learnt the tale inside out, we focussed on aspects that we could innovate and make our own.

Having decided that the reflection of the moon in the river was an integral part of the story, the children thought of other things that a character could see and reach for but not be able to attain. Linked to our Science unit of Light, many children thought about the reflection of objects in mirrors and the shadows created from objects blocking out the sun. This triggered ideas for different settings and characters. The range of ideas produced by our creative minds was amazing! We had everything from a shadow in the ‘desert wasteland’ that looked like a dead snake, to the reflection of stars in a pool in Hollywood.

We are now using these story maps to write our own innovated tales and we can’t wait to share them when we’re done!
