In the classroom and outdoors, we have been boarding the Magic Train each day to imitate Sally Crabtree’s story, which you can sing along to at home if you would like. We took turns at being the station master (which presented the opportunity to punch holes in tickets and practise our number bonds to ten) and we ‘blew’ the whistle to send the train onto its next destination.
The children worked collaboratively in teams to see who could sequence the settings correctly first.
They then thought of a sentence, said the sentence, remembered the sentence, wrote the sentence and checked the sentence before adding some beautiful illustrations of their favourite or own imaginary setting. We had a lot of trips to fairy land – we even tried to find it on our globe.
Enjoy any imaginary adventures you explore over your weekend!
