    The Story Museum at Christmas
    7th December 2017

    Year 6 had a fantastic time at The Story Museum last week. We went to watch their Christmas show, which we all really enjoyed! The setting was magical and we were amazed by the fact that the whole show was performed by one woman! We talked about how she used props, costume and different voices to create all of the different characters. Throughout the show, we were told 3 stories from different cultures in an effort to cheer up a Father Christmas! Afterwards, we retold our favourite one together, a story from Africa about a girl called Chenya. We then were really happy to explore our favourite parts of the Museum again - our favourite is still the big bed! Read more
