Both Year 3 classes spent the day in a fabulous story telling workshop, run by professional storyteller Dave Tonge. Dave helped us learn more about how to tell a really good story.
In the morning, we listened to some of Dave’s favourite stories, and learnt some tips for how to perform a story to an audience. In the afternoon we then had a go at stripping a story down to its ‘skeleton’ to learn it, and then worked on adding our own interesting details to the skeleton. To end the day we worked in groups using unusual objects as props to create a story.
We all really enjoyed our day and learnt loads that will be very useful when we start to learn Kenyan stories to perform.
We now look forward to our shadow-puppet making workshop with the Puppet Theatre later this week.
