Storytelling, UK

Storytelling is an integral part of the educational system in the UK. Even from reception classes 4-5 year old children are initiated in the actual reading and writing. Last week my visit in Reception in a very good school in a village near where I live left me stunned. So young children being taught reading and writing in such a way; through play and several other techniques! My experience with Key Stage 1 and 2 so far has been so that children in Britain read LOTS of literature for children. At the same time they listen to their teachers or teacher assistants reading out stories to them. The teaching of phonics is also prominent so reading for practice really helps. You can read more about storytelling here.

Frozen Planet

All at C

This activity is based on Frozen Planet, the BBC/Discovery series which charts life at the furthest reaches of the globe. It’s so full of jaw-dropping visuals you’ll be hard pressed to pick out just one clip. We ended up choosing a world first – this is apparently the first ever complete filming of killer whales “wave washing” a seal.
The activities for this clip are a collaborative memory task before and while viewing. After viewing, pronunciation practice with the script to work on chunking, rhythm and stress. If you can get hold of the DVD, students can try to sound like David Attenborough, and if you’re using the American version on YouTube, Alec Baldwin is the model to copy.
