Storytelling Laurate, Taffy Thomas!

25th January 2017

Year 3 and Year 4 have been working on writing stories based on ‘The Clever Wish’ by storytelling Laurate, Taffy Thomas.

Excitingly, the teachers asked the story teller to come into school and share some more of his exciting stories.  Taffy lives in the Lake District but was happy to make the long journey when he heard about how much the children loved ‘The Clever Wish’.

The children were amazed by his story telling coat which had been designed by an artist and took two years to make. The story telling coat was funded by the National Lottery and cost over £2000! The children were asked to look at the design of the coat and choose the stories that they wanted based on the pictures. We are hoping that we might be able to send some of our own stories to Taffy to read when the children have finished them.

We are hoping to ask Taffy Thomas to come back soon so that other children in the academy can experience some of his amazing tales.
