SENSATIONAL STORYTELLING SESSION...
Eagles are improving their speaking and listening skills through the medium of storytelling.
Mike arrived - clutching his story stick- and instantly settled into the Eagles class with stories about The Devil in the Bath House and the Master Tailor. We were all enthralled at his ability to tell a GREAT story and make it come alive through the use of his voice, repetition and movement. Our task was to retell a summary of the storyline in a few seconds- what a challenge! What fun!
Brookside Primary sent four girls to help Mike with his workshop and we very much enjoyed the opportunity to work together. We had to visualise a story and add our own detail and outcome. Using our bodies with movement was a lot of fun and increased our awareness of an audience.
Next week, to continue the power of stories, a few children from the class will work with children from another school. The aims of this session are:
• To foster connections between the schools through a story session.
• To encourage year 6 students to act as ambassadors for their schools,
