An abundance of stories were shared during National Storytelling Week as the senior school library joined forces with various faculties and departments, to help raise awareness and celebrate this special storytelling week.  It was a brilliant week of lunchtime storytelling sessions, with something different every day:

  • Mr Braime (Art Faculty) delighted us with The Devils Three Golden Hairs by Brothers Grimm and also a reading from The Murderer by Ray Bradbury.
  • Mrs Cross, Mrs Mallon and Mrs Perkins (English Facility) enthralled their audience with a variety of stories, one being Into the Jungle, leaving a lasting impression on all those who attended. Our Writing Club also made time for some interactive story writing.
  • Miss Denton (Learning Support) had a captive audience as she read one of her own favourites, Rhyme Stew by Roald Dahl.
  • Mrs Dewhurst (Head of Library) was eager to promote the Michael Morpurgo month of February, choosing a story taken from the book From Hereabout Hill, a selection of short stories written by Morpurgo.
  • Mrs Parker (Cover Supervisor) delighted us with Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes, some very interactive tales and even a reading from The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
  • Our parent helper Mrs Abahlous EP Satia chose to read one of her own children’s favourites, George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl.
  • Charlotte Lingard from Year 7 and Angel Miller from Year 8 read The Vixen and the Oak Tree – a re-telling by storyteller Sue Allonby.
  • Year 8 Pupil Librarians we’re eager to have their voices heard too, with Muhammad Ali reading Not Bad for a Bad Lad by Michael Morpurgo and Christopher Chen reading Going Home by Cliff McNish.

Muhammad Asif from Year 10 should also be recognised for his help on the last day of the storytelling sessions, The Grand Finale.
