Celebrating great storytelling. How many different ways can you tell a story?

The Stage 3 students have been exploring great stories and looking at the different ways that stories can be told. We have adapted Shakespeare's tale of Romeo and Juliet to create our Wakakirri story - Star of the Sea, as well as  exploring other versions and adaptations of this story.

We also attended the recent Marist production of Odyssey and enjoyed comparing how stories from The Odyssey have been used in modern literature such as The Percy Jackson series. Some students have even been inspired to write their own version of the Odyssey set in a modern day Race Around the World!
