National Share a Story Month at Bishop’s Stortford College

dragonsHave you been celebrating National Share a Story Month in your school?  If so, please send me what has been happening in your own school.  Have a look at the wonderful things that have been going on at Bishop’s Stortford College.

The Prep School Library at Bishop’s Stortford College is celebrating National Share a Story Month with a Dragon theme. The library displays have embraced this mythical theme and Library lessons have focused on how dragons have been represented in stories, poetry and in art throughout the ages. A Dragon app that revealed dragons flying around the library was especially popular.

bookshelves The Picture Book Benches, painted by Prep School pupils with the help of Hertfordshire based artist James Mayhew earlier in the year, have been ideal for sharing stories in the sunshine. (previous post) Pupils have also been challenged by the “Shh! Who’s Reading Here” competition; a selection of clues have been arranged for 24 titles and pupils have been invited to make an educated guess! Thanks to parents who helped create the literary challenge for everyone.’
