writting storys

i found a few winter storys but wasnt happy with any of them as i thought that they were a little old so i have attempted to write my own i thik taht on wednesday when we meet up it will be helpful to get some feed back.

fridays lesson was realy good mark did some warm up exerises with us such as the ABC game we were in pairs and given a background story ans had to have a conversation using the letters of the alphabet such as the first person would say : any thing from the shops? and the next person would then have to start with b so could say 'bread and butter please' and so on i realy enjoyed it as it got us thinking and working quickly.

we also did an exercise to learn how to make a room have a atmosphere with out acting out any thing or with much speeking, this was realy interesting as we did learn to stop using conversation to show a feeling or to create and atmosphere.

we then told some of our storys to each other and gave each other feed back on how to deliver them and what realy worked as the audence, we all the had a talk on how we would use the space and next week we will be in the rooms that we will be using.
this lesson went realy well.

we started to shoe some of the storys and performances and some were realy good and could realy work for the winter christmas theme that we have decided on.

I realy enjoyed Bens story and think that that is perfect, with a bit more work it will be realy good!!

I felt that meeting went realy well today and that it feels as if we are getting some where and that the communication between everyone is getting better as well.

we touched apon having other things to do for the children such as drawing and just a place for them to sit and read or some where we can just sit and read to them, i think this will work well along side the more lively storys as it will be a place that the children that dont want to realy be involved can still be entertained.

also loved the idea of having people in characture as this will make it alot more visual and exciting.

looking forward to being in the house this week and hearing everyones storys. x
