This week, the children created their own ‘Willow Plate’ after listening to the tale of the sad princess who wanted to marry her true love but wasn’t allowed. The children painted their favourite story onto their plate. As they painted, they told their friends all about their favourite story and what happens in it. Retelling a story is an important reading skill. Children need to be able to discuss events in stories and offer their opinions about stories, events and characters. Ask your child to tell you about the story that they painted on their plate. Click here to watch the story of the ‘Willow plate’.
Have a look at some photos of us painting our Willow plates. Add a comment below to let us know if your child could tell you about their plate.
