2016 celebrates the centenary of Roald Dahl’s birth. Because of this, the Roald Dahl Story Museum ran a competition for 6 schools to win the opportunity to work with a storyteller in residence. Knowles Primary School won the competition and we are now one of 6 lucky schools to work with Sandra Agard!
Sandra began her residency on Friday 8th January, working with Cherry class in Year 1. She will visit each of the Year 1 classes in turn and also spend a couple of days with Year 2.
Sandra began the day by taking our KS1 assembly and telling us some stories. This was just a taste of what was to come! By the end of the day, Cherry class were making up stories of their own, acting out stories with Sandra and drawing magical objects to inspire their story telling.
We had a wonderful day as you can see from the photos below!
