Yesterday I had the privilege of accompanying Year 2 to Forest School. I had a wonderful time; sitting watching and listening to the children immersed in their activities amongst a carpet of delicate swaying bluebells, was simply amazing! There was so much learning taking place without the children even realising it.
Last Thursday 26th April, Emily Hanna came in to teach us all about the art of storytelling. The day began with assemblies for KS1 and KS2. Both assemblies were amazing and children had a wonderful time. We learnt about how to tell stories using different voices, actions, narration and emotions. These qualities really bring stories to life.
Each class then had their own workshop which again, was outstanding. Year 5s learnt a Viking Tale, Year 3s learnt about pirates and Year 6s heard a ghost story. These experiences really inspired the children to get involved and join in with her storytelling and will help us all in the future.
Overall it was a great day!
