Talk for Writing
This term the children have been exploring story writing through acting out an existing story before innovating their own. Each year group has learnt a text as a class following a story map and learning actions to go alongside. They have been extremely engaged with storytelling, all the way from Reception to Year 6.
To share all the children's great work, we all took part in a Story Share. Each class was paired with another class from their Key Stage and retold their story. The children were then able to share their own work with another pupil and have a real life audience. It was was fantastic to see the children sitting with each other, listening to a new story and sharing their thoughts on their work.
Ask any child in St Andrew's to tell you a story and they will have one at the tip of their tongue to retell.
