Storytelling with 'Toad'

Storytelling with 'Toad'

Storytelling with 'Toad' 

On Thursday the 8th of September we joined other local schools and went to Douglas Academy for a storytelling afternoon.  After being greeted by the Headteacher we went into the assembly hall and met ‘Toad’.  He told us some rather gruesome stories.  We were not scared! 

We got in to groups and sat down at a table with a pupil from S1.  We had a large box of objects on our table and were asked to pick 4:  2 manmade and 2 natural.  We were to sequence them as a story starter, an ending, a character and a mission.  We were really creative!  We then made a storyboard to help us to inspire our stories! 

      

We have not yet written our stories but we look forward to doing this in class.  We had a great afternoon at Douglas and are looking forward to our next visit!
