Sian from Storyprops in Action visited Early Years today. She used lots of props to engage the children in the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. The session started by warming up our brains and taking turns to choose a spoon out of the magic box. We had to use the character clues to work out which story Sian was gong to tell us.
After the story we worked in groups on 4 different activities which helped us to use our descriptive words and phrases for talking about the characters or sorting the beans. We also used Sian’s story pebbles to retell the story ourselves.
After break, we used movement to retell the story – acting like the different characters as Sian told the story again.
We had a fantastic morning!
