International tell a story day.

Monday 27th April

Today is international tell a story day, this is celebrated through many countries and I think it is a particularly important day considering what is happening. In a few weeks or months this will all be over, and it will be a story that you will be able to tell people about for years and years and especially when you are grown up.

We will see this time as a growing opportunity and you will be able to tell all of your friends and relatives what you have learned, what you have done during lockdown.

I wonder what story will you be sharing in your family today and why do you like it?  Maybe you are going to share a story that you have created yourself? What is your story about?

What will be the first thing you talk to your friends about? What is your favourite thing you have done during lockdown?

I look forward to hearing all of your stories and favourite books. 

My new favourite book is 'The Boy the Mole the Fox and the Horse' by  Charlie Mackesy, it is a beautiful book full of amazing quotes and is especially meaningful during this troubled time.

    Hi Mr Ralph, my favourite book is Little Whale by Joe Weaver because what happens in the book happens in real life. I’ve built a monster lab set out of Lego. I used my imagination instead of instructions that I normally follow when building Lego. My dog is a Border Collie. Today my dad gave me his old phone and my brother Charlie set it up so I can play games and TTRockstars.

    Hi Evan, that sounds really good I will have to try and find a copy to read sometime. Wow a monster lab very cool and well done for using your imagination. That should be really good to have a chance for TTRS and games on your phone. Keep up the good work Evan, From Mr Ralph.
