National Story Telling Week (31st January-4th February)

National Story Telling Week has helped to bring language alive at Monksdown. It really has been a fun-filled, action packed week. The children have been writing and telling their own stories using the skills we have seen used by professional storytellers. We have used dance to celebrate and tell the story of Chinese new year. Some of the older children have been to read to our younger classes, sharing stories they enjoyed when they were younger. Children loved the challenge of recreating a scene from a book using small world props and Lego.

Can you guess what story each Tuft Tray is showing?
