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: painting my code and choosing different colours.

I think I need to practice: using different words when I tell my story.

Something that really helped me was: practising my story and the code helped me remember the words.

Kerri Thinks
You have told your story about the Russell Street cross country in 2 different ways. Firstly you used your senses to plan and write you story and then you painted your story in 'code'. You are starting to plan you writing and add more details to your stories. Your next step is reread your writing and make sure it makes sense, remember to check for fullstops. A full stop goes at the end of an idea.
