The Willow pattern, an ancient legend from China
As part of our work on The Willow Pattern, we read the legend looking at the imagery used and the impact upon the reader. The children also looked closely at a narrative poem of the Willow Pattern legend comparing the two models. The children enjoyed hot-seating the characters from the legend. The unit ended with the children producing their own versions of the legend, showing the viewpoint of different characters. Furthermore, they created excellent narrative poems and leaflets about the pottery linked to the legend. Come into the classroom anytime to see all the quality work on the class display!
