Primary Learners of English

All stories are told in English and include songs and musical instruments. The children are invited to participate, either by miming parts of the story while it is being told, repeating short sentences or rhymes and/or singing along to short songs in the story. Depending on the children’s level of English, we may create a story as a group (eliciting emotions, actions and events from the children who become the authors of the story). Drama activities are sometimes used as warmers.

What I like most of Rebecca’s story-telling sessions is that I usually feel like a child, enjoying the moment, absolutely involved by the atmosphere of the story, being part of it. This is like a miracle, I’m a primary English teacher but not “old” enough not to be fascinated and transported to a different reality by the storyteller. Francisca Jiliberto, English primary teacher, IE Les Vinyes, Barcelona.
