“The car has broken down.  It had a flat tyre.  It has to go to the garage to fix it!”

The detail that has gone into this picture is evident along with the thought process that has been needed to build the story.  By sitting beside children and commenting on what we can see and what children are doing it gives them the confidence to be creative without us putting pressure on them.  It gives them to freedom to put thoughts down on paper and build imaginative stories.
