Year 2 Storyteller Workshop

On Friday 5th October, Year 2 enjoyed a storyteller workshop, run by Kevin Graal from Talking Tales. Kevin captivated the boys with a magical Brazilian story about a legendary monster called Kibungo, who lived in the heart of the dense rain forest. During the morning session, Kevin activated the boys’ creativity by including drama and music in the workshop. In the afternoon, the boys re-told the story to each other, drew story maps and re-wrote the story ending in their own words. Their attention was maintained throughout the day, as we had to wait in anticipation until the end of the workshop to find out the ending of the tale. It was a tense final ten minutes in Orchard Hall! The workshop was thoroughly enjoyed by all the boys and staff and it provided an excellent tool to help bring the boys’ writing to life.
