Our oral storytelling story this half term has been Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr./ Eric Carle. The children have loved the repetitive text and are really good at retelling the whole story.
During the last week of half term we invited our parents and carers in to listen to us tell the story and also sing our Goldilocks song. We had to work hard to remember all the words and also the Makaton actions we’d been learning. They all said we did an amazing job.
Then we went back to the classrooms because it was our job to teach our grown ups the story. To help us we made a storytelling necklace to take home. We had to make sure we used the right colours and put them in the right order.
Our parents and carers all had a great time and have told us they’ve started using the necklace at home already to practice the story. Thanks to everyone who came to support us. We’re looking forward to seeing you at the next Storytelling workshop next half term.
We’re hoping to put the video of our storytelling and song up here soon so you can watch along at home if you missed it, or just want to watch it again.
