National Storytelling Week / 28th Jan – 1st Feb 2013
Last week we celebrated National Storytelling week in the Juniors. Children were encouraged to bring in their favourite storybook and we shared lots of stories from all over the world through the department.
On Wednesday some Junior parents kindly came into school to read stories to the children in their native language. This included Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, French, English and Danish. The children really enjoyed this and were able to learn some new vocabulary!
Thank you to those parents who came in to share stories with the children.
