Helicopter Stories:

Helicopter Stories lets children dictate their stories which are written down verbatim, exactly as they are told, by an adult. The children then act out their stories. Encourage your child to dictate a story and add some simple words and sentences. Please share your stories through Tapestry or the class email.

Alongside the simplicity of this approach is an ethos that is child-centred, creating a culture of curiosity and wonder at the dexterity of children’s imaginings during both the telling and the acting out of their stories.

Please share the stories on Tapestry or send them to the class email address.

Some ideas for the stories below. Follow the path to create your own story:
