Storytelling

This morning we were improving our storyteling skills. We were trying out our eye contact,to speak clearer , our pace, voice and expression. Some people were brave enough to read out to the class . We practiced with The Tortoise and the Hare.We also had to practace our listening skills aswell. We need our storytelling skills for our African Day and for our Library visit.By Caitlin and Euan

Mask instructions….

First of all we brought in clean, empty 4 pint milk cartons,

Then we used paper mache to cover it all up and left it to dry for 2 days,

We then painted them with a base colour so that you could not see any newspaper, we left it for a day or two then we put designs all over to make it look like an African mask.

                           Try making some of your own!

Our African Stories

Last week for writing primary 7 were writing and planning storys

 We read a story called “the fox the crow and the cheese”.We  found out the moral of the story such as “dont trust flatterers” and lots more .

Then we made our own curious questions, these were questions we wanted an answer too, including why is the giraffe so tall ? ,Why do rhinos have horns ?,How did the lion get its mane and many more.

We also picked a curious question each and worked in pairs and planned our own story with a moral to answer the story and we are really enjoying it . 

Watch this space for the finished stories!
