Fabulous Fairy Tales - 28/11/12

Published Wednesday 19th of December 2012 11:01:51 AM

Princesses, Princes, Wizards, Goblins and Dragons were just some of the characters to be found in the imaginative fairy tales written by pupils in Year 4 for the children in the Reception Class at Gayhurst.

From tales of quests for treasure to traditional themes of finding Prince Charming and the happy ever after ending, the pupils� stories had all the necessary ingredients to captivate a willing audience of Reception children when they read to them during an afternoon session.

Inspiration for the stories came from the preparations for the Year 4 production of �Cinderella�. With this in mind, the children were set a creative writing task in their English lessons to produce their very own fairy tales.

Director of Studies, Mr Whitaker said, �This project is a fantastic example of how cross-curricular work, such as English and Drama, can be of real benefit to the pupils here at Gayhurst. By thinking about the story of �Cinderella� as a starting point Year 4 have come up with some wonderful stories of their own and it was a delight for the m to be able to share their work with children lower down the school.�
