Sit down with
a parent and interview them about the day you were born. How did the day unfold?
How did it all happen? Where were you? Where were you when your waters broke?
How long was the labour? Did you have pain relief? Just how much pain were you
in? Was it a natural birth? Was I a caesarian section? Were there any complications?
Was Dad in the room? Who cut the cord? What time was I born? What was the first
thing you said to me? How did you feel when I finally arrived? Were there any
funny stories that you can look back on now and laugh? + any other questions you
can think of.
the children have all the information, produce a recount scaffold and write up
the adventure as a recount. Publish it to 'nice paper' and present it to the parents
at Yr6 farewell or some such occasion. Always gets a tear or two.
