I enjoyed your storytelling yesterday. The Pourquoi or Just so…-style short stories lend themselves nicely to an oral storytelling scenario. Those students who have already told their story will have their Speaking and Listening mark entered on the Yr 9 tracker before the end of tomorrow so you can ask Mr Bakewell for your marks when you see him next. (Of course, you can email me and I’ll get back to you with your mark, if you’d prefer not to wait.)
Your home learning is two-fold:
- I’d like you to write your reflections on your storytelling ‘performance’ (for that’s what it was) in the comments box below. Think about what you did well in preparation for, and in the execution of, your story; consider, too, what you need to do to get an even better mark. You might use the marking criteria below to suggest a mark for yourself; use the criteria too when considering what you have to do to get a higher mark (if this is possible!) next time.
- I would also like to hear your thoughts on the African Folk Tales scheme of learning. While you may tell me what you enjoyed and what needs to be improved, I’d especially like you to concentrate on what skills you have improved during the last half-term and what you feel you still need help with.
I look forward to reading your comments, which should be entered below by Wednesday 10 July.
Again, well done!
