Story Telling with Pat Ryan

Reception children had a fantastic story telling session with Patrick Ryan, a professional storyteller with over 30 years of experience. He collects each story from around the world and spreads it via words and actions!! It was an opportunity for children to develop their listening skills and follow a narrative without visual prompts, instead with actions, words and sounds. He told us the story of’ ‘The Elephant and the Naughty Baby’.

Children were very engaged, listening to the story and found it amusing as it was about a baby who ate lots of food and didn’t pay for it!

Chinese Dragon Dance Workshop

This half term Reception children have been learning about China and all about ‘Chinese New Year’. As part of the celebration the children were lucky enough to participate in a Chinese dragon dance workshop.  They were very excited to use some of the props such as  fans, umbrellas, ribbons and even a dragon to bring their dance to life!

 

We would like to say a big thank you to Darren from ‘Dance Days’ for giving us a wonderful experience!!
