    • Zak, I love your video! Well done for your excellent puppeteering and a big well done to your family for helping you retell the story! A superb family effort!

  1. Dear best friend,

    Traditionally, stories from other cultures are passed down to future generations through storytelling. I am writing to you to help you become a top story-teller! There are three things that are really important to remember first change your voice for each character. second is change your expression. Third is to speak with a loud voice.

    I have uploaded the rest of my work.

    • I really enjoyed your creation Lillie. Your art work is magnificent and your memory of the story is something else. I especially liked your use of props! The pens as shapeshifters and such. An outstanding piece of work!

    • Love your puppets Zainab! A brilliant start to the story, and some good written work too. How did the puppets help you to recall the story?

    • Well done Safa, you have recalled the story by writing it on paper. Nice vocabulary choices here, such as ‘ashamed’. Good illustration too, well done!

    • Thank you Luxor, you have written out the story. Be careful – a few capital letters in the wrong places here!
      What helped you to recall the story?

    • I loved your retell of the story and the vocabulary that you used! The camera angle was difficult to see your pictures but I can understand why that may have been tricky.

    • Beautifully drawn puppets Aatifa – did you use them to recall the story?
      Please use your own account! We didn’t realise who you were at first!

    • Aisha that is excellent! Absolutely amazing! How did you remember the story so clearly? I could see the effort that had gone into this and also thought it was nice when you were desperately trying to think of the right word and remember that part of the story! OUTSTANDING!!!

    • Fantastic Simin, a lovely video with some excellent vocabulary such as ‘astonished’!
      Perhaps you could try and use voices to really enhance your performance! Brilliant as always.

    • Amanah- I love your video! You got all the key parts of the story and included new vocabulary. You spoke clearly and with expression- you star! You have earned a BRICK for 4R!

    • This is a good try Shahzad! It was clever to print out the characters. Have more confidence in yourself and speak nice and loud when storytelling, use the events we ordered in the bronze task to help you. Write down some key words to remind you what to say!

    • Nice try Harris! You haven’t uploaded any work for me to hide have you!? Please do not copy the teachers’ comments. Draw you characters (you are a good drawer!) and retell the story please Harris.

    • I love your character puppets Maryam! very clever! Now try using them to retell the story- make a video and upload it, we’d love to hear your version!

    • Well done Hasan this is the correct story order- now you need to make your character puppets and record your story! I can’t wait to see it!
