Talk For Writing - Enormous Turnips!

User Rating:  / 1


We have been developing our English skills through enjoying our recent Talk For Writing unit using the familiar story of The Enormous Turnip.It has been great fun.

First we listened to the story and retold it with actions and by creating a story map together using key images to represent the main events and characters.

Enormous turnip

Next, we innovated the story by changing key elements and writing our own enormous vegetable stories which followed the same pattern as the original.

We have begun to learn how this process can help us to create new and original stories in a fun and interesting way and without leaving us stuck for ideas!

We are looking forward to our next opportunity to use these skills and write more inventive stories of our own. Watch this space ....
