Skylarks Summer term 1 Guided reading glossary and dictionary skills
Wednesday 21st April 2021
This afternoon we gathered around a fire lit in our Forest School area to learn about the significance of oral story telling in Native American Indian culture. We had a special visitor, ‘Pochahontas’, who shared with the children the Apache belief of how fire was spread among the earth. She orally retold ‘The Origin of Fire’ folk tale around the fire. The children observed how to confidently orally re-tell a story from memory and how to make it entertaining for the people listening. ‘Pochahontas’ used different volumes, paces and emotions in her voice, along with actions and facial expressions to captivate the listeners. The children will be learning another folk tale tomorrow to orally re-tell in groups.
