Story telling day at Prestfelde

Pupils from Prestfelde School in Shrewsbury were inspired to create their own amazing tales after a story telling day recently. Local storyteller Sally Tonge led the event, held as part of the school’s English lessons, when the children also performed their favourite stories including Funnybones, Little Red Riding Hood and King Midas.

Teacher Laura Bessant said: “The pupils really enjoyed the sessions with Sally Tonge, who engaged them with a range of stories, songs, rhymes and riddles. They came away having been inspired to create fantastic tales of their own.”
