National Storytelling Week

Published Friday 5th of February 2021 12:14:18 PM

Children at The Blue Coat School have been celebrating National Storytelling Week. They were delighted to find out that their teachers and some of the Support staff had been busy recording themselves reading a children’s picture book or a chapter of a longer novel. This was then shared via a BCS Storytelling website.

Listening to the staff reading stories has certainly become part of the bedtime story routine for many of the children with a growing list of books to be requested on the Reading Cloud.

We can now look forward to another favourite annual event - World Book Day, which is on the horizon next month. This year, the School is seeking ways to make this equally as exciting and will be arranging opportunities for pupils to participate in virtual author events, dressing up as fictional characters and much more!

Listening to the Staff reading stories has certainly become part of the bedtime story routine in the Ayub household this week, with a growing list of books to be requested on the Reading Cloud. Some of the staff are pictured below but there are lots more, so please do visit the Storytelling Website if you have not already done so. If your children are looking for some new high quality reading material in addition to the books from the BCS Reading Challenge, watch the videos and I’m sure they will be inspired!

It would be inexcusable of me to talk about novels and not share that our favourite annual event, World Book Day, is on the horizon next month. This year, we are seeking ways to make this equally as exciting and will be arranging opportunities for our pupils to participate in virtual author events, but more to come soon.
