Well that’s World Book Day Week (for us storytellers it can stretch to a whole glorious week!) over for another year – and what a fantastic time I’ve had!
On Wednesday I had my first visit to a school in a few months – I told tales of fish and the sea, of diversity and equality to the amazing P1 to P7 pupils of Broomhill Primary who made me feel so welcome.
Then on Thursday (World Book Day itself), I was of to Lairhillock School where the stories had themes like “Titanic” “Science” “Space” and “Toys” – from the very smallest in nursery to the oldest P7s (and of course the teachers too!) I was delighted by their costumes and the questions they asked!
And finally on Friday it was off to my wonderful local school, Kaimhill, where I told stories to the very wee ones in the nursery, P1 to P3 and rounded the day off telling a story to the whole school in Assembly. I have missed you all so much and it was lovely to recognise a few little brothers and sisters now at school!
Here’s a few quotes from the teachers:
“Thank you so much for your visit Pauline. Everyone (big and small!) was very impressed and awestruck by the stories you told.” Mr Murray, Headteacher at Lairhillock School.
“Thank you so much for visiting us today. The children absolutely loved it and so did I. Your storytelling was fantastic.” Mrs Leslie, Headteacher at Broomhill School.
