This term, our After School Club theme has been Myths and Legends, so every week in class the children, along with their Stories and More teacher, have been bringing to life some of their favourite myths and creatures.
We were so impressed with the way the children were describing their creatures and the way they were being so creative that we decided, at Stories and More, to hold a competition to draw their very own mythical creature.
This is the perfect chance for a child to really use their imagination and because there is no wrong answer or way of doing it, the pressure is off! All we ask is that they make it as unusual as possible.
I (Lillie) have never seen a Stories and More drama club so quiet, as the children went about creating their creatures, all different sizes, shapes and colours.
Once they had completed their drawings, they all stood up and introduced their creature, one by one, to the club.
These creatures are still being talked about in the sessions and the idea has evolved to the children ‘playing them’ as we go on story adventures.
This is why we love a Stories and More after school club, the children have fun, grow in confidence and get the chance to really use their imagination and bring it to life.
We used staff members and our 5 year old advisor to pick the winners and they are below: Big round of applause for Wilhelmina age 8, Abishek age 6, Joyce age 9 and Frankie age 10.
