On Wednesday 23rd April 2014 the children’s author Adam Guillain came to visit our school. His books include the award winning ‘Spaghetti with the Yeti’. He read some stories to the whole of the school and then ran story telling workshops with some of the children.
In the workshops the children learnt a story using four steps: hearing an oral story, mapping the story, stepping the story and then speaking the story. By the end of the workshop the children were able to confidently retell a story. The children thoroughly enjoyed working with a real author and some even bought signed copies of his books.
