To begin our English for this term, we have looked at story telling. We worked with a partner to re-tell a story by telling an event each by clapping to let our partner know it was their turn. Some of the stories told by our class were:
We also watched some examples of story-tellers, and discussed what makes a good story-teller. This formed our S2S. Here is an example of our S2S:
Tone/ volume of voice
Added information to interest the listener
Eye contact with the audience
Focused/ no giggling
Rhetorical questions - involving the listener
Acting parts out to show speech
Should the three brothers listen to their older brother (Alfredo)?
In groups, we discussed both sides to the argument, and came up with reasons for and against. We created a conscience alley, where one side gave reasons for, and the other side gave reasons against. The three brothers walked down the alley, and decided if they would listen to Alfredo based on which side they thought gave the best argument.
In groups we freeze-framed a scene from the story. We had to think carefully about the thoughts and feelings of the characters, and had to show this clearly in our freeze-frames. Some of the S2S we followed were:
-Scene needs to be clear
-Face the audience
