On Monday 22nd May, we had a visit from a famous storyteller called John Harris. John held one hour workshops with every child in school form Pre-school all the way up to Year 6. He told us a range of stories from memory using nothing but his voice and his body for movement.

The children were engrossed as he told all kinds of stories from a Japanese boy that grew no bigger than your hand to one about a monkey, a shark and a tree full of mangoes!!

John was in school to launch our whole school storytelling event - all children were asked to learn a story of their choice over the holiday. Back in class this week, they have been sharing their stories with the rest of the class. The class then have the tough task of choosing only two children to represent them in an assembly to parents and friends. The staff are all really excited to see what stories the children come up with!

John Harris even held a book sale and book signing of his own books after school. Lots of you queued up to purchase one of his tales which you have been reading over the holiday. If you missed out, don’t worry, we have copies of all three of the books in the school library which John kindly donated.

Each year, we either hold a storytelling event, a speech event or a poetry recital. We do this because we highly value the skill of being able to stand up in front of an audience and present in a confident manner. The more opportunities our children get to do this, the more confident they will become at this life skill, making things like job interviews a breeze in their future!

If you missed out on seeing John Harris and want to find out more, check out his website – there is also a link on there to purchase his books. Keep your eyes peeled for his next instalment!

This week the school were lucky enough to have a visit from Mr Paul Tingle from Severn Trent. He gave a very amusing assembly on the importance of saving water, which the children really enjoyed.
