English & Drama
Wordless Wednesdays - Every two weeks this term, we will be providing students with 4 images which they can choose from to create a verbal or written story. There are different ways you can incorporate the initiative that includes:
- Showing the picture to your child and talking to them about it, allowing them to describe what they see (who, what and where), using the most colourful adjectives verbally to develop the description in a fun and creative manner.
- Encouraging your child to write stories based upon the picture/photos independently. With the best stories being awarded in celebration assemblies in the next academic year.
Please e-mail any entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
This week's images are:
