In this story a little boy wants his very own star. The boy dreams of playing hide and seek and going on long walks. The children pretended that they had a star of their own. As a class we created a mindmap. Each child said where they would take their star and what they would do with their star.
The children were very creative and imaginative with their ideas. Some children wanted to take their star to the jungle and ride on all the animals. Others wanted to bring their star with them to school and do some learning. Other ideas included taking the star to another planet or going to the beach with their star.
Once children had thought of their ideas, they then used these ideas to write about a star adventure. The children in Reception produced some fantastic writing. Good work Reception!
