Tegan read us the first part of a Malaysian folk tale, we had to think of an ending for our drama.

We decided to play Linked Disease, Tessa explained he rules.

We split into groups to rehearse the story so far and think of an ending.

An Elephant and a Tiger were walking in the forest when they were taunted by a monkey in a tree. The elephant bet the tiger that he could trumpet the monkey down, the tiger said he could and would eat the elephant if he won. The elephant tried but the monkey only laughed. When he tiger roared the monkey fell from the tree in fright but the tiger said he wouldn't eat him because he could now eat the elephant instead. The elephant was very sad and begged to go and tell his family. The tiger agreed as long as the elephant returned in a week. On his way home the elephant was discovered by the mouse deer who asked what was the matter. When the elephant told him the mouse deer said not to worry as he would sort out the tiger ....

My group's continuation:

The mouse deer found the tiger and bet him that he could beat him in a race. The tiger laughed and said that if he could he could have anything he liked. They agreed that the monkey should lay the course, which he did but through very dense jungle. When they raced the tiny mouse deer won as he could squeeze through. "Now I ask for the life of my friend the elephant" said the mouse deer.

We just had time to sing Manchester Rambler and Back of the Bus.

We held our Closing Circle and sang our Closing Song.

Leaders: Debbie, Tegan, Tim, Rana
Elfins: 15
