Storytelling Day

Many thanks to all who supported us during our Woodthorpe Storytelling Day on 31st March.

We have more photos to show you on our Events page ...

As always your children were simply brilliant, performing their own incredible stories, plays and poems.

We'd like to say a special thank you to storyteller Roop Singh and children's author and illustrator, Pippa Pixley, who entertained us with lots of fun stories and activities throughout the day.
