Excellence through Effort & Enjoyment
Be Kind…Be Safe…Be Responsible
One of the things that the children really enjoyed at school was having their Helicopter Stories scribed.
I thought it would be a nice idea to create a whole-class Helicopter story in a chain format.
So over on Tapestry, I have started the story with a short paragraph, then children who want to take part can add their sentence or paragraph until everyone has had a go and the story is complete. If your child would like to take part, please head over to Tapestry and click on the Helicopter Stories post.
When the story is complete, I will read the story to the children and post it on Tapestry for them to listen to. Ordinarily we would act out our Helicopter stories. If the children want to act out their small part of the story, that would be great too and I can put together a little video of the story being acted out- but only if children want to.
When it is your turn to add a piece to the story, you will be sent the sentences that were written beforehand, so your child can hear the story up to that point then add their own ideas. There's no limit to what they can include in their sentences- let their imaginations run wild.
Children can write their own sentences/paragraph or have a grown up scribe it for them.
I can't wait to read the story and see all your wonderful story ideas.
