Get comfy, it’s story time with Wrens!

Wrens have been learning to retell the story ‘Cinderella’ using Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk for Writing’.

This involves teaching stories in a multi-sensory manner. The children had to learn actions to make the tales, especially the key connectives, memorable. Then also use activities such as puppets, role-play, hot-seating and acting out to bring the tale alive and make it even more memorable.

This was Wrens very first attempt at doing this, and what a fantastic job they have done!
