On Wednesday 6th November, Year 2 and 3 boys re-ceived a special visitor: Talking Tales’ Storyteller, Kev-in Graal.
The boys showed great focus and concen-tration as they played games to enhance their listen-ing skills. Kevin then told five parts of a traditional Native American story, “How Granny Spider Got the Light”, leaving the ending of the story to the boys’ imagination.
The boys recorded the sequence of the story on a storyboard then took turns to tell the story aloud in pairs. Later in the day, the boys transformed into young authors and wrote the story themselves.
The boys thoroughly enjoyed their day. The teachers were impressed with the improvement in the boys’ writing skills and felt that the experience would in-spire their story writing in the future.
