Telling my Story


On Friday 15th of May we had the Junior School cross-country. We ran hard in the mud and puddles; some of us even ran up and down Cycle Mountain!
We decided to tell our cross-country stories. We have done this in two ways. Firstly we panned our writing and then we wrote our story. We used our senses to help add some details to our writing. We thought about what we could see, what we could hear, what we could feel and how we felt in our heart.
We also told our story in ‘code’. With Carolyn we thought about how we can use paint and symbols to share our story. Again we thought about what we could see, what we could hear, what we could feel and how we felt in our heart.

Success Criteria:
  • Plan my writing
  • Add details to my writing
  • Create a code to tell my story
  • Speak clearly and with expression as I tell my story

Reflection

I really like: making my own code to tell my story.

I think I need to practice: reading like I'm talking.

Something that really helped me was: Carolyn showing us how to make a code.

The school cross country was a great day and you have told the story of your day in two ways. Firstly you used your senses to plan and then write your story then you painted your story in 'code'. Great job. Your next step is to add some more details to your plan to help you to include more details in your writing. Remember to stretch the tricky words out and only record the sounds you can hear.
