Spent the day telling stories with teachers – such fun! I feel very privileged and honoured to work with the teachers at Mercy’s Village Primary School in Gulu. Today the topic was storytelling, here’s a story map as part of the teacher preparation time (can you guess which famous traditional tale it is?) One of the highlights of the afternoon was hearing The Three Little Pigs being told in local language and English. Can’t wait to see this being used in the classroom! Tomorrow we look at reading levels and guided reading: we’re stepping up a gear!
Mercy’s Village has been with me since the beginning of my journey and it is exciting to see them moving onto new things! The phonics curriculum is fully immersed into school life so my remit for this week of training is: ‘Reading: Life After Phonics’ – took a while to prepare for that one, but it was worth it!
