Kate’s visit followed on from Book Week last week, so was great timing for the children. Kate is from Ireland and has been telling stories for over 20 years. She related Irish traditional tales, Anansi stories, legends and fairy tales to every year group from Reception to Year 6.
Each year group heard a different selection; for example Year 4 were treated to a story involving fractions, which they have been learning about this week in Maths, while Year 6 were invited to solve the problem of the story themselves. The performance was highly interactive and each performance was accompanied by songs and actions; rockets blasted off and goats were lifted off tables!
What did our students think?
“She sung the song of Goldilocks” – Eva, Reception Racoons
“I liked solving the problems in the story.” – Ella, 6P
“The songs with the Irish drum were great.” – Asia 5I
“I enjoyed the big bus, mini and Ferrari actions.” – Madele 4U
“I liked the underwater castle!” – Aidan, 4B
“You shake the song of cake!” – Renata, 1X
The children’s heads were filled with magic and wonder. Please ask your child to tell you their favourite story from the event.
