On Friday, Year 3 and Year 4 were lucky enough to have some story-telling visitors from Year 8 in The Reach Free School. The Year 8 children had written and illustrated their own stories and came to share them with the children in our school. It was wonderful to see how engaged all of the children were. Year 3 and Year 4 loved the experience.
“It has inspired us to use our imagination more.”
“I spotted that they were “showing” not “telling” in their stories.”
“They were so active. They did more than just read the book. They were so enthusiastic.”
“It was fun to talk to new people who we don’t learn with all the time.”
“I loved how descriptive they were. Their language was quite powerful.”
