This week was National Storytelling Week, an annual event organised by the National Literacy Trust.
This fantastic annual event is a joyful celebration of the power of sharing stories. Stories teach us about the world, they allow us to step into someone else’s shoes and feel empathy, they help us to relax and escape and they can help develop essential literacy skills.
To celebrate and acknowledge the week the children of All Souls’ embraced storytelling by visiting other year groups to share stories and read to each other.
Year 6 visited Reception to read to their Prayer Friends:
Year 5 shared stories with Year 1:
Year 4 spent time in Year 2 reading and telling stories to each other:
Year 2 were also very lucky to have Lilah and Macie from Year 6 visit them as VIP readers on Friday afternoon.
Everyone had such a lovely week telling stories and spending time with others from across school, we hope it has encouraged the children to share stories with those at home!
