The Reception children have been following the continued travels of Super Bear, our super hero friend, as he continues to travel around the world. We have heard how Super Bear is currently visiting India. He may be even be hearing the traditional Indian folk story of Shira the Lion, a story that the Reception children are also learning.
The children have been working in small groups to help to recall the story. We have been placing the events in the correct sequence as we re-tell the story ourselves. Some of the children have been able to produce written accounts. These have been read out whilst working in a one-on-one situation with an adult.
The children are asked at each stage of the story what is happening and how the characters might be feeling. We have also been focussing on the overall theme found in Shira the Lion – bullying only leads to sadness.
