Storytelling Week - 28th January-1st February
This week at school all the children have been retelling and making up oral stories.
The children in Reception made up a story about a dinosaur. They followed the Tales Toolkit format for storytelling then recorded it using our green screen technology.
The children in Years 1, 2, and 3 also recorded the retelling of their favourite stories.
See their recordings in the gallery using the link below.
During the week we invited families in to take part in story telling activities based on the story Zog by Julia Donaldson. Families made dragon puppets, acted out the story with puppets and enjoyed stories together in our reading tent. Each family recorded part of the story using our green screen technology which we put together to create the whole story. Watch our family big read in the gallery using the link below.

The Stoneyholme School Picture Book World Cup winner was...
The children in Reception and Year 1 visited WH Smiths in town to exchange their World Book Day voucher for a special World Book Day book.
This year we dressed up on World Book Day as adjectives for a whole school vocabulary parade. We asked families to use resources they already had at home, rather than go out and buy something, to create a costume and the response from families was fantastic. The costumes were amazing with adjectives ranging from "fruity" to "immortal"!
