Over several weeks, our creative Y4s produced their own portal stories. We looked at some great examples for inspiration, including The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Journey, and The Phantom Tollbooth, discovering that many of these stories start with a child living a boring life.
We wrote this part of our stories, then found (or was it made?) portals on the school field.
After this we had a week of map-making to plot all the amazing things we found when we travelled through our portals. When we found our way back to school, we wrote the ending to our stories.
