Children at Sampford Arundel Primary School started the spring term with a varied and exciting animal-themed Book Week. They welcomed storytellers Golden Sun and Silver Moon (aka Anne Harvey and Annie Fisher from the Somerset Literacy Network) into school to tell Native American animal tales and went to the village hall to see Rod Burnett’s fantastic Storybox Theatre production of ‘Three Pigs’,
The children finished a a busy week by dressing up as animal characters from story books. As well as these events there were many opportunities for listening to stories, including favourite books shared by parents and other adults. It was a wonderful way to begin the new term, and re-focus after the festivities of Christmas, and the children rose to the occasion, producing some excellent work in response to their experiences.
