In Nursery and Reception the children really enjoy our Helicopter story sessions. These sessions begin by the children listening to stories that other children have written and acting out a role on a stage.
As time goes by and the children develop their imaginative skills, they then take on the role of being the storyteller and share their very own story with the rest of their class. The storyteller chooses which role they would like to play on the stage and then the teacher choose children sat around the stage to then take on the other roles to bring the child's story to life.
