The Great Telling Off at the Isle of Wight Literary Festival.
Fifteen finalists from years 5 and 6 all told a story - no reading, no prompts- just themselves! They were brilliant. Fellow storyteller, Sue Bailey and I had visited their schools previously. We gave them the following instructions:
They must include the phrase, 'The other side of the door.
Their story must not be longer than 4 minutes
They could work either alone, as a pair, or in a group of three
All stories were told in a Little Telling Off, with the children voting for their favourite to represent their school
