KS1 - planning a story (storyboarding)

Any sugestions for making storyboarding more interesting? We've done loads of input about planning a story and in the middle of the week the chn will need to document it some how...

drawing 4 pictures is a bit dull though!  Confused

The chn are creating their own charlie and lola stories if that makes any difference?

photos of them or small world figures doing the story

would be lovely - but logistical nightmare for all of the kids to do it :s

Maybe could do it with my lowest kids though.

are they all writing their own story then ? have you got a TA ?
what type of stories ?
Could you have some pre prointed pics that they could cut out and stick on story board eg if doing Little Red riding hood have trees, LRRH and wolf, cottage, grandma etc for them to use ?
Sorry I'm KS2 so these are probably of no use to you what so ever !guess it may just be 4 pictures  !

Thanks for your help.

I am aiming to get them to all write their own mini story - I might prepare some pictures etc for them to use. We haven't got small world stuff but that would be a nice equivalent.

Cheers!!

What about trying to incorporate collage into the story boards as that is the technique used in the books? They also incorporate text from different places so some cut out words from newspapers as sound effects or into speech bubbles stuck onto the story boards might be fun. On the charlie and lola website there are also some wallpapers to down load -you could use some of these as the backgrounds to story boards.

Lauren Child also has a website

On the Charlie and Lola page in the characters section - there is a useful couple of pages on how she creates the look - this would give you some ideas for how to create a collage effect like hers that you could use for storyboards.

Thanks Smallholder - the children have created backgrounds in the style of the book. They didn't turn out as well as they could as I left it to a suply teacher Sad

I might get them to make front covers for their stories in this style too though.

Maybe you could cut up and recollage the ones that didn't turn out so well onto some interesting papers such as wallpapers or gift papers - particularly as Lauren child's uses several layers in her technique.
