Up and Down the Story Mountain…
Not only are we learning about mountains in topic, we are also learning about how mountains can help structure stories!
Today, the children were introduced to the 5-part story structure. We now know that EVERY story needs:
-A build up
-A dilemma (dun dun DUNNNN)
The children then partnered up and tried to identify the 5-part structure in famous picture books. The children LOVED reading the stories (as you can imagine). With a bit or resilience and a lot of reciprocity, the children managed to identify the structure of each story.
