Tell me a Story
This week we have been exploring the importance of story telling and have begun to looking at an African story; 'Nolwandle, Girl of the Waves'.
To learn how to become effective story tellers, we first watched an African story teller in action. We enjoyed the call and response he used- "Crick! Crack!" We all had great fun trying to copy his actions for animals and facial expressions to enhance the story.
After this story telling experience, we applied what we had seen to our own story telling of "Nolwandle, Girl of the Waves". We thought of our own call and responses. Ask us for an example! To add more interest, we also used musical instruments to create the sounds of the waves and to show an unpleasant character.
Afterwards we evaluated our performances and considered how we could improve these further. We had great fun!
