Fairylands and faraway places

Fairylands and faraway places

The great thing about using natural materials is that they are all open ended resources – they can be whatever the children want them to be and it stimulates their imagination.

To start our topic of fairytales in Literacy we decided to create our own fairytales in our local environment. We used natural materials we found in our woods and playing fields to create lands fit for a princess or fairy monster. These worlds of imagination stimulated lots of discussion and descriptive words which we used as a starting point for our writing back in class.

The children enjoyed creating their fairylands – and they worked well as a team. They were absorbed in their worlds and came up with some fantastic creations including an enchanted castle made of loo rolls and clothes pegs and a path of snow through the forest.
