Winnie the Pooh as told by Class LH

Class LH have been rewriting their own versions of Winnie the Pooh.  We started off by looking at the original version by A A Milne where we examined the vocabulary he used and the way he told his story.  We then practised retelling his story using actions to embed the story before we planned our own versions.

In our own versions, Winnie the Pooh faced different settings which he had to negotiate; he was strolling near a volcano; he slipped on some stepping stones and in one story he was even on the Jurassic coast landing on fossils on the beach – linked to our learning in ‘Dinosaur Planet’.  

With a special introduction, using the storyteller’s cloak, the children then introduced their own versions of Winnie the Pooh.  Each story was unique and the children used powerful vocabulary to enhance their versions of the story.  The children used good expression to retell their own versions which had the class enthralled.
