Narrative Prompts – Some suggestions

Here are some narrative prompts to help you choose something that would be useful for your students. Could teachers please get together to decide which prompt they will use:
– Receptions – will orally retell a well known story
– Year 1/2 – a fluffy green frog used as a prompt
– Year 3-6 – Trouble prompt (see below)
– Year 7 – Through the doors

Please decide with your group the exact wording to be used by the teacher when introducing the prompt. Explicit teaching is not required at this stage of baseline data collection. Confirm the prompt and wording with Nicola, Julie or Daniela prior to undertaking the task with students.
