Oakwood P4 Storyplay Session 3
19th February 2020
We had another great day with Oakwood’s P4s!
We started with Storyplay games and our ‘Big as a Bear’ warm-up grew into a new group poem of similes and actions like ‘Make yourself as… ‘Smiley as a person!’ ‘as Spikey as a hedgehog!’, ‘as Rolly as a ball!’, and ‘as Slow as a Sloth!’
We flew off in our Magic Balloons again high over Scotland and the world …seeing stories unfolding far below us!
Then we sat and told each other the story of the Molly Whuppie LicketyTale we saw on Monday. Everyone had fantastic recall of the story in great detail.
Ten of us dressed up as the King! And twenty of us dressed up as the Giant! We had great fun exploring our castles and our gardens! The Kings paraded to join the Giants and we met all the characters.
The Giants interviewed the Kings & then sang gardening songs and did a bit of gardening.
As Cold as a Popsicle – Damon
As Chocolatey as an Easter Egg – Millie
As yummy as a Cake – Kayleigh
As Hungry as a Wolf – Ava
As Loud as Music – Lily
As Soft as a White Tiger – Kaydie
As slow as a sloth climbing down a tree – John
As Erupting as a Volcano – Logan
Jump as high as a rabbit – Alina
As Skinny as a Noodle – Jessica
Then the Giants wrote a letter to their Giant Mums to tell them their news and what a problem they are having with the King asking for the 3 precious things…
And the Kings wrote a letter to their King Cousin, to tell them how things are going at the castle and how much trouble they are having getting the Giant to give them the 3 precious things.
The King wants the Never-empty-purse because he is so greedy! He wants the Dragon Sword so that people will be afraid of him and do as he says. He wants the Singing Ring so he can sing so beautifully that everyone will love him!
The poor Giant is scared that the King will tell the people that he is a nasty horrid Giant and they will come to chase him from the mountain. He is practicing being a scary Giant! Not very well!
