Rather than an “Ask Charlotte” blog (I will do one next week), today is a guest blog from my six-year-old daughter Rebecca. At school, the children are currently learning the building blocks of story-telling, after reading Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl. This is the one she wrote using puppets to guide her:
Once upon a time, there lived a furry, mummy fox. One day she went to a special party, but unfortunately she lost her special lipstick. At night, at seven o’clock, she had enough time to find it because the party started at nine o’clock. So, she found it and put it in a magic cider jug to wash it up. She put on the magic lipstick. She dug and dug and dug, until she got to the party, because it was in Beans Cider Cellar.
At the party, she saw her family and she danced with them. Then she saw her mum and dad so, she danced with them as well. Then she saw her aunty and uncle, so she danced with them as well. Then she saw her great-aunty and uncle! Now, she saw her great-great-aunty and uncle, and grandma and grandad, so she danced with all of them! And then, she saw her grandaughter and grandson, so she danced with them too.
