Fantastic creative writing happening in class 1/2S this morning, as they explored the retelling of The Magic Bed. To start with they explored the story, then sequenced it and looked at key ideas in the text. This was followed by imaginative role play, that involved beds (constructed of chairs) apprearing all over the classroom. From these the children visited various aspects of the story, all of which consolidated the sequence of imaginative places that the Magic Bed took its occupants to. A superb introduction to enable the children to write their own settings. The buzz and sense of excitment was so great, it attracted me back to see the final outcome!
