Worcester Storytelling Festival
On the 11th October a group of Year 7 students were offered a chance to visit Worcester and enjoy an afternoon at the Storytelling Festival. This inspirational trip engaged the students in an exciting session with Ben Haggarty, a world-class performance storyteller, and offered them the chance to learn about writing and creating their own personal narratives.
During the session, Ben worked with the group of 11 students on creative writing skills and how to craft their language for effect, the outcome of which was outstanding. Students left the festival excited and keen to continue writing. This was in most part due to his engaging performance which left the students enthralled!
A most successful visit – one that we hope to repeat next year!
