Description

Storytelling can go beyond narrating the written word, and I think there is merit in pupils ability to speak narratively about their own experiences. After we have shared ideas as a class – I don’t force any individual kid to share unless they are wiling to at this point – we can then get onto producing our own page. The book invites readers on a whimsical journey that follows a young boy’s desire to create a robot clone of himself. Does the book contain anything that teachers would wish to know about before recommending in class (strong language, sensitive topics etc.

A vital closing part to this session should be the opportunity for children to share their work with each other in the class, perhaps randomising it in some way so that they are not necessarily just sharing with their best friends. I could share – and I have just thought of this now, and this is the kind of free flowing retrieval of anecdotes that this lesson is all about – the time when I was taking a group of kids to the swimming baths with a youth charity, and I had to choose between wearing my massive glasses in the pool and looking weird, or going without, and lacking my eyesight. I cannot remember exactly who first mentioned this book on Twitter a few years ago, but to whoever it was, I am eternally grateful.Philosophy for children this certainly is: I lost count of how many times it opens up space for reflection and discussion.

This esoteric little book is a brilliant one to share, it is visually arresting and is such a great book to teach with. Kevin, a little boy fed up with doing things he doesn’t want to do, like homework and daily chores, decides to spend all his pocket money on a robot that he intends to turn into a clone of himself. The time should be given for the children to add detail to their stories, when telling them – time for embellishment and questioning. Teachers could use this book as an icebreaker discussion to enable a new class to get to know themselves and others, for thoughtful artwork based on the fun labelled diagrams in the book or for PSHE lessons about expressing and celebrating individuality.To get what I mean, think about one of your classes: you will have a couple of children in there who can capture the attention of everyone in their class when they are telling even a quite objectively boring and uneventful anecdote, and you will have some children who, even if something truly remarkable has happened to them, haven’t got the capacity to tell it well.
