The Joy of Storytelling

Kwilena, one of our Year 1/2 classes this term has been looking at the composition of Journey Stories. Exploring how these are composed through a build-up, problem and resolution. Each student planned their own Journey story, creating dot points about what would happen.

Yesterday the Chess Masters (Year 5/6 class) assisted with the final part of the process buddying up with a student from Kwilena. The Kwilena’s used the dot point journey they had created and verbally told their story to their Chess Masters buddy and they, in turn, typed it up. They then re-read the story together pausing occasionally as the year five or six student asked exploratory questions to develop the story further. To finish off, they researched and found pictures to illustrate their Journey Stories.

   

Principal Paul popped in for a visit as the students were reading their completed stories. The joy of a completed well-told story coming to life was evident in their faces!

“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.

Creativity becomes more visible when adults try to be more attentive to the cognitive processes of children than to the results they achieve in various fields of doing and understanding.”
