    Your Way Or My Way

    'Your Way Or My Way'  by Ruth Kenward - 5 to 7 yrs - KS1  (1m 44s)



    Theme  -  Dealing with different points of view

    Story  -  by Ruth & John Kenward  (approx. 6 mins)

    It was Friday afternoon and the children were having 'choosing time'. Katie and Adam headed over to the reading comer where there was a huge box of dressing up clothes. 
    'I'm going to be a princess,' Katie told Adam, as she pulled out a shiny white dress with silvery patterns on it. 'And' she added, 'I'm going to have a big party with lots of guests.'
    'That's a good idea,' said Adam, 'and I'll get all the party food ready.'  'Great!' said Katie...

    ...Realising she was going to take ages, Adam decided he’d dress up too. Rummaging around in the dressing-up box, he found a policeman’s costume. ‘I know,’ he thought, ‘I’ll dress up as a policeman and be the princess’s bodyguard. That’ll make it more fun!’ 

    At last Katie decided she looked like a proper princess, and she turned to Adam. ‘I’m ready now,’ she said. ‘But why are you being a policeman?’
    ‘I’m going to be your bodyguard,’ Adam explained, ‘because that’s what princesses have.’
    Katie frowned and sat down grumpily. ‘But it’s my party,’ she said, ‘and I don’t want a policeman.’
    Adam stood looking at her crossly. ‘But I’m a bodyguard policeman! That’s what princesses have!’  ‘I don’t care,’ Katie retorted, ‘I don’t want one.’  ‘Well,’ said Adam crossly, ‘policemen are more important than princesses anyway.’  Katie folded her arms. ‘No they’re not,’ she huffed, ‘so you can’t come.’ 
    ‘Why do we have to do it your way?’ Adam asked, but Katie just turned her back on him...
