Year 5 showing their story to Year 2

Year 5 worked on the story they had read about how New Zealand had been formed years ago.  The children used the Pie Corbet method to help them remember the order of the story.  Then they created story board/ cartoon strips to give to Year 2 in the form of a book about the creation of New Zealand, a story from the other side of the World.  One Wednesday afternoon the Year 5 children took their stories to Year 2 and performed the story detailing the events taken from The Magic Fishhook, retold by Heather Amery.
