Small groups tell or perform a story which incorporates random sounds.
Work in small groups of 4 – 6. The groups are asked to come up with a selection of random sounds – with each member making one vocalised sound. Next, the group decides on a sequence in which these sounds are made and practices it. Each group performs its sound sequence in turn to the whole class. Now the groups are asked to make up a story in which these sounds occur – in the sequence already decided upon. The story can be narrated or acted.
