National Storytelling Week with Literacy Trust

We celebrated National Storytelling Week last week in schools all over the country! I was honoured to be chosen by the National Literacy Trust to lead their Storytelling Week campaign visiting schools virtually to inspire children with stories and helpful tips for crafting their own tales. As well as this, it was so nice to tell in person stories to classes at Hillingdon Libraries from Nursery right up to Year 6! There was music and colourful props, and everyone was invited to jump into the stories. I love getting to see the children’s faces and be spontaneous with their ideas that I weave into my stories. Together we make our own version of the tale. Plus, I get to laugh at the funny expressions and wild things they come out with 😁
