Tall supply stories - by Kyle


My name is Kyle. I am a reception teacher and love my job.

A few years ago, teaching in Australia, I was taking a reception class and we had been burgled. The crooks had got onto our roof and come through our skylight. They took a few things; it wasn't the greatest day to walk into class.

We had been learning about traditional tales and were about to start our new story of Jack and the Beanstalk. I quickly drafted up a letter from "the giant" saying that he was sorry for stepping on our classroom roof and had said he was looking for Jack.

In a nutshell, I believe the magic needed in a lesson is harnessing a child's imagination. Being adaptable and open to change can turn an upsetting event into something the kids wanted to write about (we wrote letters back to the giant).

Anyway that's all!
