Share a Story: Celebrating a World of Stories

The month of May is the annual National Share a Story Month and this year the Federation of Children’s Book Groups celebrates its golden anniversary with a theme of Celebrating a World of Stories.


During the week beginning 21st May we had a special week when we:

  • explored traditional tales and stories from a range of countries and cultures; we travelled the world through stories

  • came together as a school for special assemblies

  • had a themed dress up day on Friday

  • held special events in the school library

  • held a competition to find the story characters hidden on our website - with 5 prizes of £5

  • invited children and adults to share traditional tales with the class

  • held a philosophy day using the Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf as a stimulus

  • shared stories by the author Jessica Souhami; we explored her ‘borrowed’ stories through drama, music, writing and art, and other areas of the curriculum

  • and our older children discovered the origins of well known traditional tales
