This week Mrs Alexander has been very busy setting up our new outdoor storytelling area, it looks fabulous. Mrs Alexander started by digging the holes for the logs to be place in and then secured them with postcrete. Next she inserted willow into the ground, for the frames of the chairs, and then weaved the willow around the base. To finish off our bespoke storytelling area Mrs Alexander created one large storyteller’s chair and added screening to the fence, to create the perfect storytelling setting for feeding young imaginations.
Some of the children helped a little by putting on gardening gloves and packing the willow chairs with wood chips and cuttings.
We are excited by the story area’s potential to help develop the children’s communication and literacy skills, as well as promoting creativity.
We have already started to witness the benefits it will bring with the children already using the area to share and listen to each other’s imaginative stories.
Please feel free to thank Mrs Alexander, in the comment section, for all her hard work in creating our fabulous bespoke storytelling corner.
