Storytelling success for Matlida, by Mrs Walters
Date: 9th Nov 2021 @ 1:26pm
Well done to one of our year 3 pupils who took part in an exciting online project and ended up reading out her own work at a Storytelling Showcase!
Matilda attended a 90 minute Zoom session every week as part of a Wirral Libraries creative writing project for children aged 7 to 11.
The theme was all about climate change and children were invited to join the Zoom based courses with author Charlie Lea, who guided them on how to write powerful and persuasive stories of their own.
Matlida was then invited to attend a Climate Champions Storytelling Showcase at the Liverpool Central Library where she read out her own story.
We are all so proud of Matilda who did an amazing job!

Year six had the absolute pleasure of attending a special drumming workshop on Monday! We learned about lots of different percussion instruments and their West African heritage.

After a few practice rounds of responding to different calls, we then performed in classes to the rest of Year 6 what we had learned. What a fantastic experience!
