The Queens Hat/Handbag Lesson Idea - Reimagine the story just like these creative pupils did!

I have to thank Ramssey Junior School in Cambridgeshire for coming up with this ingenius idea! 

Year 3 of Ramsey Junior totally reimagined THE QUEEN'S HANDBAG in the most creative way. And so can you!

By replacing HANDBAG and rewriting my synopsis they made up their very own royal adventures.

The teacher simply created a small booklet of blank pages.

On the cover of the booklet is THE QUEEN'S *BLANK*. On the back is my back-cover synopsis for THE QUEEN'S HANDBAG. But the teacher cleverly omitted keys words so her pupils could then use their imagination to fill in the blanks.

The pupils filled the blanks in with words like GOLDEN POTS, NINJA MONKEY, SPITFIRE, HELICOPTER, CHEEKY HORSE and GOLDEN BANANA.

Then they wrote and illustrated their very own adventures, which include lots of other famous landmarks, like the Eiffel Tower, and different modes of transport, like a helicopter.

This story is so easy to reimagine, because the plot is essentially a simple chase through lots of famous landmarks, like Stonehenge, Edinburgh Castle and the White Cliffs of Dover. Pupils might like to pick other famous landmarks.

In THE QUEEN'S GOLDEN POTS she goes to the Amazon Jungle.

In THE QUEEN'S HANDBAG she rides a train, a plane, motorcycle and even a penny farthing! But in THE QUEEN'S GOLDEN POTS she rides a helicopter!

Some pupils even added their very own final 'butler' scene just like in THE QUEEN'S HANDBAG and THE QUEEN'S HAT.

 I think this is such a brilliant idea! I'm mightily impressed by all of these funny, imaginative and totally bonkers additions to THE QUEEN series!

I think this is something you can have lots of fun with too, and it's a great way for children to learn about landmarks and different modes of transport!

Below are some photos of the fun stories imagined by the very talented pupils at Ramsey Junior School, in no particular order. These are simply amazing!
