In the first half term it became apparent that many children throughout the unit have a passion for story telling. Initially the children started bringing in their favourite story books from home to share with their friends. One week,a number of children all brought in their Snow White books, through this shared interest, they decided to act out the story of Snow White outside in the garden. Day after day this core group of children perfected their version of Snow White.
In October we gathered together for our first project meeting. We talked about our favourite stories and made up some scary stories for Halloween. In our second meeting, Lola suggested that your imagination makes up the stories in your head and you can't make a story without an imagination. Lola's comment sparked many interesting discussions and the following meetings were focused around talking about our imagination - what is it? How does it work? During our fifth meeting we had a wonderful discussion about what your imagination looks like.
