Smashing Storytelling in Year 6

This week the Year 6 children have enjoyed undertaking various tasks linked to stories, books and traditional tales! We began each day with story related activity including guessing the book from the first line, identifying a book from a small section of the front cover, solving 3 clues to find the name of a book and decoding emojis to find the name of a well-known book. The children were able to apply their knowledge of books and problem skills, knowing many of the books, alongside having fun. We designed bookmarks, changed elements of a traditional tale or fairy story and made videos using Flipgrid showing our storytelling skills.

Alongside this, each afternoon, we read a daily instalment of a new Tom Palmer short story ‘The Character Strikes Back’. Each day, we were left on the edge of our seats desperately wanting to know what was going to happen next. We made predictions, explored the character of the mysterious ‘man in black’ and even designed the front cover and wrote the blurb! A wonderful week immersed in a wide range of stories and books with something for each and every one of us – we couldn’t think of anything better!
