We will work at retelling the story of King Midas and the Golden Touch, using the storytelling process.

The children will hear the story, we will co-construct a map of the story and the children will make one of their own. We will then use the maps to step out and retell the story.

We will decide on some gestures and/or actions to use in the retelling.

We will use "Talking Sticks" to tell the story around the whole class, in small groups and in pairs.

We will make a plot matrix, to discuss elements of the story and key vocabulary we want the children to learn and use.

We will record ourselves telling the story, using the ipads.

We will write the story either independently or using an adult scribe.
