The Tale of Cinderella

The Tale of Cinderella


Year four have been learning the infamous rags to riches tale ‘Cinderella’. At Southill, we use text mapping in order to help children to not only read stories but perform them! Internalising stories also helps them with how to structure their writing, learn about new vocabulary and helps children to generate new ideas for a tale of their very own.

Below you will see the children performing using intonation, volume and expression. They have loved learning the tale and I am sure it will help them with their own rags to riches tale which they will be writing very soon.

Well done, Year 4. You smashed it!

A huge thank you to Mrs. Wallis who kindly filmed the children from all sorts of positions in an effort to get the best camera angles possible for your viewing pleasure. Remember Mrs. Wallis…Pain is temporary, but film is forever.

Mr. P
