Speaking Skills: The Gruffalo’s Story
There’s no such thing as a Gruffalo!
You know the story of the little mouse, but do you know the story of the Gruffalo? Why does everyone find the Gruffalo so scary?
In this workshop, you’ll use your imagination to picture the life of the Gruffalo taking clues from the words and pictures in the book and share your ideas in short speeches in front of your peers. You’ll learn why we love stories so much and practise your own storytelling and speaking skills in fun and creative ways!
This clever story by Julia Donaldson is based on a Chinese folk-tale that’s been told for generations. Learn all about what makes folk-stories special and why we’re still telling these stories today!
Parents, this workshop uses the popular children’s book The Gruffalo to introduce youngsters to folk-tales and proverbs as a launch into storytelling. They will practise reading aloud, be encouraged to share ideas, and learn to speak in front of others. The workshop weaves speaking skills into experiential learning so that students build skills in a relaxed atmosphere. Suitable for current students and highly recommended for new students looking to enrol in Voice and Acting™ in 2021.
