We ran a creative literacy workshop at St Bartholomews School in Wotton Basset with two reception classes. We made shoes to inspire the children to come up with stories about lost shoes. We helped them scribe their stories which we present here for your entertainment.
Lyssa - I'm in my bedroom and I lost my shoe. I looked all over the house, in the bathroom, in my brothers bedroom, I couldn't find it so I had to hop everywhere. When I went to bed I found my shoe is was there all the time!
Samuel - I'm in the play park, playing when my shoe flipped over the fence. A squirrel finds it and runs off with it. He tried on and it fitted him. I tickled him with a stick and fell out of the tree. I climbed up the tree and got my shoe back.
Jessica - I'm in the park when I lost my shoe. It fell off when I was walking. It waggled off and it flew away because it had a feather on it. I walked all the away home and found my shoe as it had flown home.
